@envoyatshu This month’s FOCUS is on child soldiers around the globe. There is still an alarming number of vulnerable children being forced into combat without any other alternatives. Many join out of fear of being killed, abandonment and survival. Many believe becoming a child soldier is their only way of survival and often times, the only family they have left due to the unstable situation in their region. Our first article takes a look at Nigeria. Children in Nigeria are taken by groups such as Boko Haram and are forced to become suicide bombers or trained into soldiers.

@the_plague_doctor__ MYANMAR. 2000. AK and Pearls. A girl child soldier who at age 15 enlisted in an armed militia group after the National Army burned her village. She is a member of the Special Women Unit of the Karen National Liberation Army. Children are among the ranks of Myanmar’s many armed groups and the UN is working to gain access to recruitment centres, training schools and camps in order to identify children, gain their release and support their reintegration and rehabilitation. There are an estimated 250,000 child soldiers in the world today. It is estimated that 40% of all child soldiers are girls. They are often used as non-combatant ‘wives’ (sex slaves) of the male combatants. Child soldiers are recruited by government forces as well as rebel groups. Not all children take part in active combat. Some are also used as porters, cooks and spies. Children are sometimes forced to kill or maim a family member; breaking the bonds with their community and making it difficult for them to
@savethechildrencanada Yannick* was just 15 when militants entered his village to recruit new child soldiers. He and others were made to take part in a ‘baptism’ ceremony to give them mystical powers and were told that bullets could neither hurt nor kill them. Armed with nothing more than a stick, they were then sent to fight."We ran away into the bush to hide. When we decided to come out, we met some people from Save the Children who stayed with us and helped us," explains Yannick*, from the DR of Congo. "Now, I like playing football and card games at the Save the Children club. It helps me to forget everything that has happened to me." ---Photo: Mike Sunderland/Save the Children #savethechildren #DRC #Conflict #childsoldiers#armedconflict#humanrights#endwaronchildren
@ericlatiff Child soldiers (some of them still very young) wait in line during a release ceremony in Yambio, South Sudan on February 7th 2018. So far more than 300 former child soldiers, including 87 girls, have been released in South Sudan's war-torn region of Yambio under a programme to help reintegrate them back into society, according to the United Nations. The programme of reintegration aims to help 700 former child soldiers return to normal life. Credit: AFP/Stefanie Glinski #childsoldiers#southsudan #war #photojournalism#photography
