Rasha lives in a small rural village in Egypt. Girls in villages like hers don't normally have birth certificates. It's as if they didn't exist. With the birth certificates come their identities and all their rights as citizens. Girls in villages like hers don't normally go to school, but she desperately wanted to, and persuaded her father to let her. But the school wouldn't let her enrol because she didn't have a birth certificate. So she stayed at home.
Fortunately for Rasha, a teacher came to the village asking girls to enrol at school. She allowed Rasha to start school without her birth certificate, and helped her apply for one. Now Rasha is 15, she has finished her primary education in three years (normally six) and has gone on to preparatory school. And her father is working with families, encouraging them to send their daughters to school and helping them obtain birth certificates.
