Barriers to legal residency
Mariam (16) together with her younger brother. She and her family lives in a crowded neighbourhood in Al Badawi in Tripoli. Since Mariam turned 15 she never leaves her house especially not alone because she does not have a legal residency permit and she lack the formal identity documents to obtain a permit. Mariam is afraid to go out without the company of either her parents or older brothers which forced her to quite school.
