14-year-old Nadine has been living in a dumpsite with her family ever since she can remember. Life has not been easy for Nadine but she is not letting her circumstances hold her back. She is finding her way to her dreams through education.

Nuri, a 11 years old child labour is found by the roadside, who lives on breaking bricks. She hardly earns BDT 60 each day, which is mostly spent to buy her lunch. She cannot save even a single money. Yet she dreams to go back to school, to get herself admitted in grade 7. COVID 19 has buried many dreams of children like Nuri worldwide.

Children of Syria are still calling for their right to receive an education. War didn’t silence their voices, they kept getting louder than ever. “We want to go back to school” they kept chanting.

In 2006, Winfridah Hampeyo, then 12 years old, lived in a remote community in Zambia's Southern Province's Chikanta area. Her future seems grim because all her parents were peasant farmers. But it didn't last long because Jaimi and Todd Yee's family in Colorado, USA, sponsored her when she enrolled with World Vision. That was the start of a close friendship that grew over time, primarily through letters sent between the two parties via World Vision offices.

“But when World Vision came into our community, they sensitized all the households about the importance of practising hygiene and sanitation. They also drilled boreholes that provided us with clean and safe water,” Event narrates.
