Be the Change

Zero Force be the change enlist your friends now to help eradicate the use of children as soldiers.
Zero force

At any given time there are a quarter of a million child soldiers globally experiencing a suffering that most of us cannot even imagine. These children are routinely abducted violently from their families at a tender age, and are subjected to forcible confinement, torture, threats, rape, brainwashing, slavery, starvation, intoxication through drugs and sleep deprivation. They are forced to carry heavy loads, including human bodies, not just weaponry. They are often paired up and killed if their partner escapes.
The use of child soldiers is horrifically true and is taking place now. The status quo is unacceptable and international proposed solutions are failing. For this global tragedy to see an end, it is going to take a global movement. A global force led by youth that is strong, organized and committed to sustained change.
I have been leading this fight for over five years, without a force behind me. I’ve come to realize that this is not something anyone can accomplish alone. It is only some we can but an end to together
We can realize a world without child soldiers and
it begins with you.
