African Children Facing Forced Recruitment To The Army

Children should not be permitted to serve in military and other forces since they are not mature enough to take firearms or other weapons, however there are a substantial number of children's soldiers in many countries across the world.

Children less than 18 years of age in many nations are not allowed to serve in military or other armed forces, yet in certain countries, especially those with lack of soldiers, a great many juvenile soldiers, including women, are well-advanced in the military.

Some of these children are allocated to various tasks; some excel at playing the roles of spies, while others excel at playing the roles of messengers. When the Army is at war, some female Soldiers serve as troops' chefs.

Despite the fact that child soldiers are uncommon, they do exist in many parts of the world, and some of them are happy with their lives.

In the gallery below, you can see more photographs of child soldiers in Africa and other parts of the world.
