There is an obvious problem with child soldiers. A child soldier is a human under the ageof 18 who is either taken or they volunteer to provide services like fighters, cooks, messengers, suicide bombers, and even in some cases sexual purposes (young girls are more at risk for the use of sexual purposes). As said before, child soldiers are obtained by force or they volunteer. The ones that are forced are usually taken from theirfamilies in poor and small villages and they never see them again. Volunteers believe that if they volunteer they will be provided with safety, meals, income, and a place to live if they are homeless. Most of the volunteers are uneducated and believe this is the only option for a good life for them. There is not an exact number but there is an estimated number of tens of thousands of children being used in armies for either state militias or rebel groups. It is defined by the UN that a child soldier is anyone under 18 that is associated with an armed force or an armed rebellion. These

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
