Child Soldier Relief

Icon

The mission of Child Soldier Relief Foundation (CSR), a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt organization designated by the Internal Revenue Code, is to advocate on behalf of child soldiers by serving as a central repository of information on all topics relating to the topic of child soldiers.

Network of Young People Affected by War (NYPAW) to be launched

…soon to help former child soldiers and other child victims of war connect, communicate and heal.

Created jointly by six well-know former child soldiers and advocates, including Ishmael Beah (Sierra Leone), Kon Kelei (Sudan),  Grace Akallo (Uganda), Emmanuel Jal (Sudan), Shena A. Gacu (Uganda), and Zlata Filipoviæ (Bosnia Herzegovina), the project is supported by the United Nations, including UNICEF and the Office of the Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict, War Child Holland and the Permanent Mission of Italy to the UN.

Building on our own experiences, NYPAW seeks to speak up for the rights of all these children and to find concrete measures to prevent the use of children in war.   We also hope to remind the world of how resilient children are, when given the right support. We are best-selling authors, renowned musicians, and youth advocates who hope to serve as role models to all those whose lives have been affected by violence.
