Child Soldiers Campaign

War Child International is a family of independent humanitarian organisations which work together to help children and young people affected by armed conflict.

1 in 10 soldiers in armed conflict is a child. At this moment more than 300.000 children are being used in wars worldwide.

War Child supports and strengthens the protective environment for children who, as a result of conflict, live with a combination of insecurity, poverty and exclusion.

Children should never be soldiers. Not under any circumstances. Child and soldier should never go together. But still, it happens. It happens every day. Some of them are only 8 years old.

There are two aspects at the centre of concern

  • Prevention: aimed at preventing children from becoming a part of armed groups
  • Reintegration: aimed at the succesful return of abused ex-child soldier into society.

Help bring normal life to child soldiers.
