Big dream of small Dream
The fourth-place winner of “Children, Hopes and Dreams”, the first UNICEF Iran and Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance joint photography contest
Arezou (the Persian word for "Dream") is a student in one of the villages of Talesh in North of Iran. The people of this village do not have access to basic services especially electricity, clean water, natural gas, telephone, roads and health centers.
Her biggest dream is to continue her studies and became a physician, so that her people do not have to bear the hardship of going to the city for medical treatments.
Due to the far distance between the high school and the region she lives in, most of the students mainly girls, abandon their education at high school level.
