GIVE CHILD SOLDIERS IN CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC THEIR CHILDHOOD BACK

Francis

“I didn’t want the death of my brother to go unpunished. So at the age of 13, I joined a local armed group. By the time I reached my 14th birthday, they had made me kill 4 children and an adult using a knife. It was traumatising. I did not want to kill anyone anymore, so I escaped after 3 months. There is no future for me in the group. I want to go to school and study and turn my life around” Francis*, 14

The Central African Republic has been ravaged by conflict since independence, leaving its children and youth in a state of fragility. These children deeply feel the effects of the injustice, or feel that they have no hope left for their future. Such children choose to join armed groups to find a purpose.


To ensure children do not get recruited by armed groups, you can:

  • Rehabilitate former child soldiers by providing them with education or vocational training
  • Educate the community on the importance of accepting former child soldiers and facilitate their reintegration into their communities.
  • Empower at-risk children through education so that they don’t view armed groups as the only option for their future
