SOS Children's Villages to extend child soldiers project in southern Sudan

14/04/2005 - An estimated 4,000 underage children are still enlisted as child soldiers in Sudan, where a January 2005 peace agreement marked the end of a 21-year north-south civil war in the African country. But even when these children are freed, their reintegration into communities is often problematic and hampered by their past histories as child soldiers.
