Main sequences: Sunny, 20, fought twice in Liberia’s civil war – first when he was 12, then when he was 17. With the help of a UNICEF-supported project run by the Sustainable Development Promoters in Ganta, Sunny was enrolled in a programme where he learnt a variety of skills but specialized in agriculture. Today, instead of carrying weapons, Sunny is planting seeds and hoeing the land.
