Jetta McLaggan They are still nothing compared to a child enlisted, but they are still there.
So, with the dawn of yet another year of my life, I want to make the 27th one matter.
In my 27th year I will be graduating with my Masters of International Law, my thesis dedicated to this cause. Although I am 27, I am still trying to find my feet, whilst a child as young as 20+ years my junior will be given a gun, will be subjected to sexual slavery, may be given addictive substances and will be asked to do things that no person,abit no small child ought to even know of.

Not sure if this is out of altruism,privileged guilt/mental health shame or moral responsibility. Regardless, I would love some help and support in the charity closest to my heart.


Contemporary international law is failing to fully recognise a child soldier for what she or he is. A child. Not purely a combatant.


So for my 27th year, I would like it to mean something.
A relatively small target of £730, which is £2 per day being 27.


Thank you for anything you are able to contribute!



I will hopefully be making some glass Christmas decorations, with 0% commission and 100% donation to this page.

Also, a big thanks to everyone who has donated, I understand most of the donations has been done independently and the estimate is at £200?
