About the product
In this report, current and former child soldiers express their ideas, thoughts, feelings, and fears. The report is a record of their voice rather than a search for numbers; it is an attempt by UNICEF to raise awareness and shed light on the specific nature of child soldiering in the East Asia and the Pacific region. Through the voices of child soldiers we learn how children are drafted into war; we learn about their experiences as soldiers and how they cope in their post-war lives. This document is a valuable resource for those involved in the fight against the recruitment of child soldiers.
