Esma* looks to the future with courage and hope: "I want to become a gynaecologist," she explains. The girl is eleven years old and grew up in Syria. Her childhood has so far been marked by war, flight and loss.
Escape in Syria: Mother and child had to leave their hometown
Since 2011, a brutal conflict has dominated the lives of children, women and men in Syria. Esma's father died in the war and she and her mother had to flee their hometown of Homs. Today she lives in the Idlib region. However, violent fights have marked this region recently.
But, thanks to arche noVa, a member of the German alliance Aktion Deutschland Hilft, children like Esma can go to school there. The organization takes care of internally displaced people in this region. The girl herself attaches great importance to this: "School and education are very important for me. The school promotes my talents. I play the piano. And I want to be a gynaecologist."
