Marie-Goreth, 18, has never been to school. She cannot read or write. She wakes in the morning to walk almost one hour to a field where her family grows rice and sweet potatoes.
My name is Israa’ Salman Al-Rehel. I am 10 years old and I live with my family of eight in Beit Lahia in the Gaza Strip. Since I was four, I have had a hard time seeing and must use prescription glasses.
