“I’m 12 years old and from Serê Kaniyê. We abandoned our home, fearing Turkish bombardments, and became IDPs in Al Hasakah. Now, we live in a small house on the farm, which my father toils in. I dropped out of school to help my dad. On the holidays, I help him irrigate the farm, and I work as an automobile mechanic for the rest of the days. My hands are always dirty because of oil, as I work simultaneously as a mechanic and a farmer. I love school, but since living conditions are difficult, my father can’t provide for all our needs alone. I have to work too.”
