A Bright Future is Everybody’s Right

These displaced people wish to do something in life and parents of the refugee children also want them to be able to read and write - to become a doctor, engineer, lawyer or pilot - to have a future. Given that refugee sites are crowded places and refugee camps are noisy during the day time, a poor child trying to read his book in dim light in the silent night questions himself why isn’t life fair enough to me?

Global campaigns have already started in which different organizations join hands and together try to make the world a better place.
