Supporting war affected children in Central African Republic

Plan International is working alongside local partners to ensure children affected by the conflict in the Central African Republic are able to access their rights and recover from the trauma they have suffered.

Supporting Children released from armed groups and forces

In commemoration of the Day of the African Child 2016, Plan International Central African Republic organised an event for children released from armed groups in partnership with local organisation UTEFAJEDE.

Training helps youth recover from war

During the conflict in Central African Republic, Nafi has lost both her parents. Thanks to training provided by Plan International, she's gaining new skills and looking to the future.


François, a former child soldier making a new life for himself

At 18, François lives on the outskirts of Bangui, the capital of the Central African Republic and one of the most affected areas during the violent conflict that broke out in 2012. 


Rosalie, a former child soldier

In late 2013, fighting broke out in the Central African Republic, killing thousands of people and displacing hundreds of thousands of families. Children are among those who are the most affected during times of crisis. Huge numbers suffered violence, having been torn from their homes and separated from their families or recruited into armed groups. Rosalie, 16, became a child soldier after her father died. 


Second chance for a bright future

Zara, 13, was unable to go to school for two years when civil war engulfed the Central African Republic. However, she now has the opportunity to return to class thanks to Plan International’s Second Chance initiative.
