Child Recruitment Issue

The issue of Child Recruitment is one that affects many children in war torn Yemen and other regions experiencing conflict and instability. The Nada Foundation compiled a file on the effects of child recruitment on the the individual and society and put forth a report on the prevalence and effects of child recruitment. The information gathered is useful to law-makers, journalists and organizations working to understand and improve crime rates, instability, and destruction of social fabric. The report identifies this issue as a violation of human rights of the child and urges governments and rebel groups to abstain from this tactic of building armies. Also mentioned in the report is the necessity for parents to protect childhood by keeping their children out of conflict.
