No choice: It takes a world to end the use of child soldiers

World Vision International


Founded by Bob Pierce in 1950, World Vision was then and continues to be a global force for good. A community of millions, driven by our desire to protect, empower and transform the lives of vulnerable girls and boys in the most fragile places all over the world. According to the United Nations (UN), 357 million children live in areas affected by armed conflict, and that number has risen dramatically over the past ten years. Children are disproportionately affected by war – including facing increased risk of all forms of violence and exploitation – yet are the least responsible. The recruitment and use of children are grave violations of children’s rights, with lifelong effects on children and their communities. And yet tens of thousands of children are used by both armed forces and armed groups in at least 20 countries around the world.

This report draws on World Vision’s experience working on the issues related to children and armed conflict as well as on the findings of a multi-country study conducted for World Vision by Child Frontiers. The study included primary qualitative research in the Central African Republic (CAR) and Colombia, as well as desk research on the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Iraq and South Sudan. The primary research relied on focus groups of affected community members, key informant interviews, and testimonies from people who were associated with armed forces or armed groups as children.
