“If I don’t go to school, what will become of me?” – Veva, 14 | UNICEF

When conflict broke out in Central African Republic, 14-year-old Veva fled from her now-destroyed home to a tent near the national airport in Bangui. Clashes drove over 6,000 children and their families into the displacement camp where they also attend school. Veva is determined to remain in school, saying “If I don’t go to school, what will I do? What will become of me?” Other children she attends school with are coping with the trauma of displacement, with some drawing pictures of weapons. She says, “It disturbs me, it really does because before, their life was not like that.” _______________________________________________________ Subscribe to UNICEF here: The official UNICEF YouTube channel is your primary destination for the latest news updates from the front
