Central African Republic: Former child soldiers struggle to return to normal life

France’s peacekeeping mission in Central African Republic officially ended this Monday, but the consequences of the civil war that tore the country apart from 2013 to 2015 continue to be felt. During the conflict, up to 10,000 child soldiers were enlisted into armed groups. Today, several reintegration schemes have been set up to help these youngsters return to a normal life. Our team on the ground has put together this report.

A programme prepared by Patrick Lovett, Elom Marcel Toble and Claire Pryde.
