Giving Voice to Youth Affected by War

Drawing of a child soldier shooting a mother and child by Rashid Peters, age 15.

Drawing of child soldiers firing at people trapped in an ambush by Ernest Foday Mannah, age 16.

This drawing by Jane Peters clearly reveals child soldiers who fight as traditional hunters known here largely as 'KAMAJORS), and are often supportive of the democratic government. Led to take up arms for the most part because they are being suppressed by the militant rebels who make a whole onslaught on villages.

This drawing by Julius Mannah demonstrates the consequences of a child soldier (REBEL) being caught by regular army or militia supportive of the government.

This art work by Mohamed Kuteh portrays a vivid reality in situations where child soldiers (rebels) in particular, revel over their successful holding of militia men or armed men supportive of an opposition group into captive.
