THE PLIGHT OF CHILD SOLDIERS


The words “child” and “soldier” or “war” should never come together; the fact that they do is a moral outrage and a humanitarian disaster. Do your research and discuss the reasons why children are recruited, what they suffer and how to deal with the problem.
Familiarize yourself with the issue, watch the videos:
