|The United Nations estimates that 10,000 boys and girls were forcibly recruited and made to serve as porters, cooks, messengers, soldiers, and sexual slaves during Sierra Leone's ten-year civil war. Now, seven years after the war, a generation of youth face the future with few educational and employment opportunities, but with the psychological scars of war-related violence.|
Support Psychology Beyond Borders' efforts to help these war affected youth rebuild their lives and allow a generation shattered by war to achieve their complete potential. Make your tax-deductible donation to PBB today.
Some have shown great resilience, but others are still struggling with depression, anxiety, hostility, drug and alcohol abuse, and may even become violent or suicidal. Communities are still struggling to rebuild physically, and have to manage the challenges that face their youth.
Inattention to war-affected youth threatens the developmental potential of a generation, the stability of society, and future peace in the region.
Your tax-deductible contribution to Psychology Beyond Borders
will support programs that are guiding former child soldiers and war affected youth to sustainable and healthy futures.
The U.N. estimates more than 10,000 children were abducted or conscripted into service in Sierra Leone. With your help, we can rebuild lives and the future of Sierra Leone and other underserved populations.
