These 2 young little girls were unable to attend school as they did not have any birth certificate. As with many other citizenship cases in Malaysia, the parents of Kirthana & Ghayathiri did not register their marriage, therefore they could not acquire the citizenship for their daughter. DHRRA  worked tirelessly for 2 years & compiled documentations needed to rectify the issue with the Registration Department of Malaysia. Government provides monetary & administrative assistance to NGOs such as DHRRA to seek Indians in Malaysia who are stateless. Lack of education in the rural communities of Malaysia has been the cause for the inability of registering birth & marriages within the Indian Community.
