Conflict remains the greatest challenge in most of the African Union Member States and has caused devastation in livelihoods, loss of life, property and health. The cumulative effect of conflict has hindered economic prosperity in most of these countries. The youth have particularly been caught in the web of consequences of wars and post-wars. Their importance as both victims and agents is not far-fetched. It is estimated that over 300,000 children under the age of 18 are involved in more than 30 conflicts worldwide (UNICEF Fact sheet). In Uganda more than 60,000 children have been kidnaped by both the armed forces and rebel factions. Similarly, it is estimated that 15,000 to 20,000 children served as child soldiers during the Liberian civil war. In Sierra Leone, about 5,400 children were abducted between 1992 and 1996 and forced to fight on both sides. The demography of most of the post-war countries in Africa points to the fact that over 50% of the population of those countries were under the age of 18 at the time of conflict, which makes them the most vulnerable group that suffers the pain unleashed upon.
