Class of No Tomorrow

Children do not start wars, and they cannot end them, but they always pay the highest price.

Can you see the bullet holes?

“Class of No Tomorrow” are sculptures shaped like children. They symbolize the innocent victims who lost their lives or got injured while they were in schools.

The sculptures are built from wood of the remains of schools from Novotoshkivske School in Ukraine, Ogweni Primary School in South Sudan and Khalid bin Wal id School in Iraq.You can see wounds from bullets and shrapnel in the figures.

From widespread killing, maiming, abduction and sexual violence to recruitment into armed forces, and strikes on schools and hospitals– children living in conflict zones around the world continue to come under attack on a shocking scale.

Children are only children after all, and they must be protected.

According to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, children have the right to protection in war and from violence. Unfortunately, this is not the case for many children today. Today, one in four children lives in a country affected by conflict or crisis.

Before, during and after humanitarian emergencies, UNICEF is on the ground, bringing lifesaving help and hope to children and families.

We never give up.
