Child Soldier Relief


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.

New play, the Aperture, explores complex issues about child soldiers

The Aperture by playwright Sean Christopher Lewis explores what happens when an American photographer stages photos of a former child soldier in Maryland woods as a child soldier.  As The Aperture website explains,

Staging photos to look like the boys native Africa, the photographer begins re-creating his history in pictorial – passing pictures off to the public as photos from war torn Uganda. As her notoriety grows, so do the boy’s memories as he retreats deeper into his past and begins to take on the role of soldier once again.  Is Alex a witness or an accessory to the events that follow?

The play, which won the Rosa Parks Playwright Award, has been showing in New York this past week and will be shown August 17 and 19 as part of the New York International Fringe Festival.

Look for Child Soldier Relief’s Kate Davey’s interview with Sean Christopher Lewis on The Aperture coming soon.
