Children released from armed groups

Report from UN Children's Fund

Mass release of Children by Myanmar Armed Forces

The release - the largest since the signing of the Action Plan to prevent and end the recruitment and use of children by the Tatmadaw between the Country Taskforce on Monitoring and Reporting on grave child rights violations (CTFMR) and the Government of Myanmar - follows in the footsteps of a visit to Myanmar by the United Nations Security Council Working Group on Children and Armed Conflict from 30 November – 4 December 2013.

 

Children released by armed groups in the Central African Republic

The children’s release is the result of negotiations between UN representatives and the transitional authorities to allow unimpeded access to all military bases in the country so that children found among the ranks of the ex-Seleka /national forces can be released to child protection actors.

Imagine a world where we build on the core strengths of children, their families, and communities, to create dignity, belonging, and justice for all.
