Caption : Tavush region, Vazashen village, school. Janitors play a special role in the school’s life as they keep an eye on children to ensure that they do not hurt themselves. To work and live in a border village is synonymous to constant duality: stillness and tension, hope and concern, light and shadow.

Description : ICRC website, 19.12.2017, Photo Gallery "Despite the security risks, children, living in communities along the border, between Armenia and Azerbaijan, go to school every morning. For an outsider, their lives may appear normal, but appearances can be deceptive. It is only when one interacts with the children who attend school, or their teachers, that the gravity of the situation becomes evident. The ICRC works on both sides of the border between Armenia and Azerbaijan to help people deal with the security situation, loss of livelihood and lack of economic opportunities."
