Minding the gap

Painful journey: Agnes Padan returns to Lun Bawang to piece together what happened to her mother, Kam Agong, who died after giving birth to her younger brother 16 years ago.

RUJIAH Sami considers herself as just an ordinary person. But to over 70 stateless children, she is an angel.

Every day, they squeeze in a baking hot shack with a leaky roof to learn from her. Rujiah is their teacher, and she has been running the school to provide basic education to stateless and marginalised children living in her community in Sabah for about four years.
