A short documentary showing the humanitarian conditions of people in the Acholi region of northern Uganda have faced 22 years of war and over 2 million holed up in concentration camps. Uganda is a good friend of USA and USA actually sponsors many projects in Uganda including funds for HIV, education and even the Uganda military. However, the US government does not want to talk about this war that has killed hundreds of thousand people and as many as 60,000 innocent children abducted and used as child soldiers by both the government and the LRA rebels.

The Human Rights Watch organisation says the military junta in Burma is making more and more use of child soldiers; some- say the organisation, are as young as ten years old.
As a child, Mayom Mabuoung was a soldier in Southern Sudan. Like many other children, Mayom’s transition to civilian life in southern Sudan was not easy. Mayom was like thousands of child soldiers who were demobilized after the peace agreement in 2005. They came to communities like Rumbek, whose overcrowded schools were in such poor condition rain leaked onto students, teachers and the books. But that is changing. UNICEF made it possible to build permanent structures at Deng Nhial. The construction project is part of the ‘Go to School’ initiative, the Government of Southern Sudan’s campaign to rebuild the education system and return 1.6 million children to the classroom by the end of 2007. Today, at 24, Mayom Mabuong is a teacher at Deng Nhial School. To him, the new school represents more than a physical structure; it is a child-friendly, safe haven where child soldiers can become citizens.
Northern Uganda has endured 20 years of brutal civil war – a conflict that enslaved thousands of child soldiers and created 1.6 million refugees. A fragile ceasefire has existed since the summer of 2006 and the country is now looking to the international community to help solve the many problems created by war: the cult-like Lord’s Resistance Army perpetrated massacres and mutilations, forcing girls to be sex slaves and brainwashing the boys to become brutal killers. Aid agencies such as Plan Canada are now helping to rebuild the communities and infrastructure destroyed by 2 decades of turmoil and unrest.
War is always hard on children but it’s got worse in the past ten years. Major armed conflicts have been replaced by low-level fighting, often between factions within the same country. These smaller wars blur the lines between combatants, criminals and terrorists and present new, more brutal threats to the unprotected. Ann M. Veneman, UNICEF Executive Director "In today’s conflicts children and other civilians are directly targeted and threats to children living in strife are increasing. They are not only caught in the crossfire, they are often the intended victims of violence, abuse and exploitation." The new UN report says progress has been made. There is more legal protection for children victimized by war, but much more needs to be done to support all children affected by conflict. Hilde Johnson, UNICEF Deputy Executive Director "The reality on the ground, is, and the Machel Strategic Report does note that it’s still incredibly difficult for very very many children. In 2006 more than 18 million children were affected by displacement as a consequence of conflict. More than 43 million children in 30 conflict-affected states are out of school." Many war crimes against children are committed with impunity and the UN report urges its member states adhere to international standards, and to emphasize the rights of children during and after war. Ishmael Beah, Former child soldier "Youth who have come out of this have a more first hand knowledge about what the violence does to them and what can be done to really help them, those that are affected. Those that continue to be affected. So I think it’s very important that at every stage of this children are sought after and listened to and their views taken into consideration." It’s very important at every stage that children's views are taken into consideration.
