The Child Soldier: Our Writing
Giving Voice to Youth Affected by War


They Are Not Protected
by Isata Joyce, age 17, Kamanda Secondary School
Freetown, Sierra Leone

A child soldier is the child that has been used in armed force and
as such they are not protected, no attention is paid to their
right the usual age is between 10-19yrs the war impact their lives by
giving them cocain etc. These children are not willing to join the
force but some are willing. I pray that God will help these children
to change there behavior.
