PROJECT AK47: No More Child Soldiers

Child slavery in all forms is heinous and evil, but especially when it involves child soldiers. Guerilla armies and drug cartels will take children, train them to kill, and then send them to the battlefield.

Instead of a childhood full of love and learning, these children, boys and girls as young as 5, receive a childhood filled with the death and horrors of war.

PROJECT AK47 is working to protect these children and free them from military life in Asia. With over 100,000 child soldiers in Asia, their work is beyond admirable and you can learn how to help by visiting their website

Child soldiers are largely found in Asia and Africa, but the problem exists worldwide. Look for future posts with more information about the groups fighting this evil and ways you can help them.


Everyone I talk to about modern slavery agrees it's atrocious. Then they ask, "What can I do?" BE A VOICE. Spread awareness by sharing these posts and videos with others. Collectively we can reach thousands of people. Creating awareness and making this an issue in the public mind WILL lead to CHANGE.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
~Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Will you accept my invitation? Will you be a voice?

Thank you,
John Burger
