Since Jarablus was cleared of Daesh 12 months ago, the city is slowly rebuilding but faces many challenges.

Rebuilding after Daesh was forced out of the Syrian border town of Jarablus has been slow. 

Children in Jarablus were deprived of an education for years. Now that some schools have opened, they have a chance at the simple pleasures and basics of childhood.

Most people in Jarablus still function without the basics amenities needed to live with dignity.  

"We need electricity, water, sanitation and most importantly, schools. There are schools but they are far away," said Bakri Abo Hassan, a resident of Jarablus.
