The Stats

The use of Child Soldiers is happening in 36 countries worldwide. In fact, 300,000 are fighting in a war right now.

Did you know: about 1/4 of soldiers fighting in the civil war in Liberia are children.

Think about it: these children are your age, and even your younger siblings' ages. Do you think you're suited for war? What about your siblings? Well neither are the child soldiers - they've had little or no previous training.
They shouldn't be treated this way!
