As world leaders decide how to allocate resources in response to COVID-19, climate change, and conflict, they must make spending on education a much higher priority.

A promising future in sight: Ameer's story – UNICEF

“I used to feel different. I’d wonder why the children I play with could read and write while I couldn’t,” says Ameer, 15, from rural Homs, central Syria, reflecting on his childhood. Ameer, the second among his five siblings, was born blind.


Ameer was eager to learn since early age. Raised by a loving family, his parents tried to enroll him in school when he reached school age. With the ongoing conflict there were delays and Ameer ended up starting school a year late. In 2014, he started Grade 1 and was also registered at the Blind Care Association, local NGO in the city.
