Overview

Civil war has raged in Colombia for more than forty years, touching millions of lives with despair. Colombia's children have lost their parents and homes, their schools and security. Yet today young Colombians are among the leaders of efforts to end the fighting. Nominated three times for the Nobel Peace Prize, the Children's Movement for Peace is a coalition of courageous young people working together to build a better future. Here, nine of its members tell their haunting stories.
