Every child in the world has the right to an education without fear of violence or attack.
However, increasing numbers of children are faced with their schools being occupied - or even bombed - by military forces around the world.
As Ahmed, above, says: "I wanted to become a doctor but perhaps I won’t become anything because our school was attacked".
Children shouldn’t pay the cost of conflict.
That’s why over 80 countries have signed up to the Safe Schools Declaration - a commitment to protect education and stop military use of schools.
Now, the world’s most powerful countries - the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council - need to join them.
