Ending the Use of Children as Weapons of War: General Dallaire's Ultimate Mission

The abuse of youth as weapons of war is a reality that can't be resolved with immediacy, nor is it acceptable to wait till after the abuse has happened to address the harm.

On March 10th, LGen Dallaire (ret’d) will discuss his mission to end the use and recruitment of child soldiers. General Dallaire is achieving his mission through the organization he founded, The Roméo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative at Dalhousie University. The Dallaire Initiative has created the world’s first prevention-oriented, security sector focused approach to ending the use of child soldiers in conflicts.

Proceeds from General Dallaire’s presentation will go towards supporting the work of The Roméo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative and the Halifax based organization, Sending Orphans of AIDS Relief (SOAR).
