Tucked away in a city of tents and caravans near Jordan's northern border, a group of Syrian refugees live within a dual reality.


On one hand, destruction and loss. War has resulted in an abrupt transition from 'have' to 'have not.' They came to Zaatari camp leaving everything behind. A harsh reality.


On the other hand, stability and hope. Connected with Questscope's mentoring program, funded by the European Union and coordinated by UNESCO, they rediscovered a purpose and found a voice again. A hopeful reality.


In December, as the Questscope team set out to capture this story, no one would have been able to decipher between Questscope staff and refugees. There was teamwork, built on love, trust and respect. The result is a story of loss that cannot be sugarcoated, alongside a story of transformation that cannot be kept silent.


This is only one chapter of a bigger story. Crisis continues in Syria and millions are in need of another more hopeful reality.
