Dream of Better Days
“That’s my mother, father, and brother by our beautiful house in Syria. The day is sunny and there are butterflies,” says Yasmin. Her mother and father had worked for years to build a comfortable home for their children. When fighting came near, they had to flee, and now their home is a tent in the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon.

“In the future, I want to be a teacher in Syria,” she says. She drew a cabinet with books in the classroom and she’ll give them as gifts to all her students.
