Direction: Read the texts flashed on the screen

Important / salient points.

Child Soldier

Burma has the largest number of


child soldiers in the world and the
number is growing. The
overwhelming majority of
Burmas child soldier s are found
in the national army, Tamadaw
Kyi, which forcibly recruits
children as young as 11,
although armed opposition
groups use child soldiers as well.
These children are subject to
beatings and systematic during
training.

Human Rights Watch noted


that there is no way to
precisely estimate the number
of children in Burma's army,
but it appears that the vast
majority of new recruits are
forcibly conscripted, and there
may be as many as 70,000
soldiers under the age of 18.

"Burma's army preys on


children,
using
threats,
intimidation
and
often
violence to force young
boys to become soldiers,"
said Becker. "To be a boy in
Burma today means facing
the constant risk of being
picked up off the street,
forced to commit atrocities
against villagers, and never
seeing your family again."
