FC: Child Soldiers in Sierra Leone | By: Johana Martinez Brianda Magana Daniel Garcia Grace Del Cid
1: There are an estimated three hundred thousand child soldiers around the world. Every year the number grows as more children are recruited for use in active combat.
2: Children are most likely to be soldiers if they are poor, living in poverty, seperated from family, or are living in combat zones.
3: Both girl and boys are used as child soldiers. in some countries like nepal, uganda, and sri lanka, a third or more of the child soldires were reported to be girls. in some situations, girls may be raped, or given to military commanders as "wives".
4: WHAT CAN WE DO TO HELP!! | There is an estimated 300,000 child soldiers worldwide! we can help by donating money to needy countries so the child soldiers rate will go down. You can also write a letter to our government or start a petition! The possibilities of ideas are endless!
