Virtual exhibit - "One Day, I Will"

One person in 18 is currently caught up in a humanitarian crisis. These crises can be caused by conflict, natural disasters or, as is the case right now, a global pandemic. Around the world, more than 258 million people need humanitarian assistance just to survive.

This exhibit documents the hopes and dreams of children trapped in crises. All aged between 6 and 18 years old, the youth featured here have dressed up to show us who they want to be when they grow up, using costumes and props from their immediate surroundings. By tapping into each child’s vision for the future, photographer Vincent Tremeau gives us a unique glimpse into their current circumstances and challenges.

About the event

Combining an artistic approach with a documentary purpose, the images highlight the crucial role of education in humanitarian crises, for securing children’s safety and future opportunities. They are a testimony to the vulnerability, resilience and creativity of today’s youth and how they can shape the future.

Every day, humanitarians around the world do everything they can to save more lives and better protect children trapped in crises. The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) helps humanitarian organizations deliver assistance and advocates for people affected by conflict and natural disasters.
