Meet Sameer, Age 10, Yemen


"I was surrounded by my parent’s love..." - Sameer

10-year-old Sameer grew up near Sana’a with his parents, sister and 4 brothers. His early years were happy, he tells us how he grew up “surrounded by his parent’s love”.

Sameer’s father always dreamed of education for his children. When Sameer turned 7 he started going to a school near his home.

One morning, Sameer left for his first lesson of the day. His big brother Hussein was running late and planned to catch up with him.

Sameer waited for Hussein to get to school. But he never showed up.
