Ambassadors for education, in Za’atari refugee camp, Jordan (by unicef)
ZA’ATARI CAMP, Jordan, 12 September 2013 – A group of young girls are striding out of the school gates with a purpose. The new school year is starting, and they’re on a mission to get their peers back to school.
Mozoun, 14, is one of thirty 12- to 15-year-olds who are crossing the refugee camp, home to some 120,000 Syrians, to promote education to children and their parents.
She comes across a mother and her children hanging up washing outside their caravan. She has so much energy that her words can’t come out quickly enough. She’s determined to pass on her message.
“I love education, and I’m aware of the importance of it. People must tell others about good things that they know and not keep them for themselves,” says Mozoun.
