Child Soldiers in Congolese Society
Current estimates put the number of child soldiers, boys and girls, worldwide at 250,000. The biggest use took place during the two Congo Wars (1996 to 2003). The Democratic Republic of Congo and the international community have been trying not only to demobilise those children. More importantly, they have been struggling to reintegrate them socially. A difficult task.
