Asmah | Too Young for Marriage

Asmah is 15. A Syrian refugee living in Turkey, she got married at 12 and has two young daughters.

"I wish I could still be in my country, at my school with my friends. My dream was to become an art teacher," she says. "I feel heartbroken when I see my little brother going to school."

Asmah is one of four Syrians who documented their daily lives to highlight why all refugee children should be in school.

World leaders promised last year there would be "No Lost Generation" of children as a result of the Syrian crisis.
