"Nothing wrong with whatever you do for a living, as long as you do it with dignity"
This is what Ghazi Al-Nasir, 59 years old, has proven.
He is married and lives with his wife and two sons in a small modest flat in Jaramana, Damascus suburbs.
since 1995, Ghazi worked as a school janitor and for more than twenty years he didn't mind doing the hard cleaning work because his main concern was to secure a decent livelihood for his children and support them to complete their education; his eldest son is studying now at the Faculty of Commerce and Economics, and the youngest is studying in the Faculty of Informatics.
Ghazi was very proud of his sons and considered the fact they are studying at the university his biggest achievement in life.
However, in the year 2019, Ghazi had an injury during his work at school, which caused him a severe fracture in his foot, and because he couldn't afford the high costs of the operations, he ended up suffering from a 30% disability in his leg and wasn't able to work anymore, so he started a small buffet service in the school for students, and for two years he was able to support his family through its income.
Unfortunately, at the end of 2021, the ministry of education stopped all the school buffets, which made him without any job.
"When God closes a door, he always opens a window"
Through the Micro-projects program, Ghazi was financed with the necessary goods and equipment to start his small mini-market, which he and his family will work in, hoping to obtain a sustainable income that will provide them a decent life.
