At the age of 10, Maha (not her real name) is uncertain of her future, especially when she had no access to formal education. Born to a Malaysian father and a foreigner, the father found it challenging to register her birth as there was no marriage registration. Despite holding a birth certificate, Maha was declared as non-citizen due to the lack of parents’ details in the BC. Feeling at lost, they approached DHRRA Malaysia. At DHRRA, they where were assisted to add the father’s information into the birth certificate through the legal framework. Maha is currently waiting for her status verification under NRD.
