Child Soldiers

By Logan and Garret

Child Soldiers Epidemic in Africa

  • In 2000, they estimated over 300,000 were being used in armed conflict.
  • Boys are used as soldiers or cooks
  • Girls are used as slaves, doing what ever their leader wishes them to do
  • Boys die from large infections if they lose an arm or leg because they do not receive proper care when wounded
  • If a child becomes a mindless killer, there are no means to straighten him because those people can not afford therapy
  • The boys are beaten for everything, if a leader thinks their knees are too low in a march even!
  • Leaders of parties choose kids because it is easier to bend them when they hav eno morale values, unlike adults
