central african republic1
Central African Republic
  • The opposition Popular Army for the Restoration of the Republic and Democracy (APRD) and the Union of Democratic Forces (UFDR) used children in hostilities which broke out in early 2005. Both expressed willingness to demobilize their child soldiers, but only the UFDR had officially entered a disarmament, demobilization and reintegration (DDR) process by October 2007. Children were thought to be present in government armed forces, but were not believed to be actively involved in hostilities.

Chad
  • Increased recruitment of children by Chadian armed forces and Chadian and Sudanese armed groups was reported in 2006 and 2007, in particular along Chad’s eastern border with Sudan and from its refugee and displaced persons camps. Despite an agreement by the government to facilitate the demobilization of child soldiers, an estimated 7,000 to 10,000 children remained in armed forces and groups in September 2007.

  • An estimated 7,000 child soldiers remained in government forces and armed groups, including foreign armed groups mostly to be found in the eastern provinces of Equateur, Ituri, Katanga, North and South Kivu, and Maniema. They were used as combatants, porters, guards and sexual slaves. Children were recruited from refugee camps in Rwanda and used by armed groups in North Kivu.

Somalia
  • The recruitment and use of child soldiers significantly increased, with thousands of child soldiers involved in all parties to hostilities which escalated in 2006. Intense fighting resulted in large numbers of civilian deaths and injuries, among them many children, and massive displacement.

sudan1
Sudan
  • Thousands of child soldiers were recruited and used by armed forces, government-backed militias and armed opposition groups in Sudan. Recruitment of children from refugee camps in Chad occurred in 2006. DDR efforts were hampered by ongoing conflict in Darfur and the lack of basic infrastructure for successful reintegration in the south

uganda1
Uganda
  • Up to 2,000 women and children remained with the opposition Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) in October 2007. They included girl soldiers who had been raped and borne children while in the ranks. Children were abducted and used by the LRA in combat and other roles and forced to commit and witness human rights abuses. Fighting and LRA abuses had significantly decreased by early 2006. Children were recruited and used by the national army, the Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF), and auxiliary Local Defence Units (LDU). Children captured by the UPDF were used for gathering intelligence on the LRA and to identify LRA positions and weapons caches.
