Jean, 16, sits with his grandmother in their home where they live with Jean’s siblings and parents in a village near Goma, capital of the eastern province of North Kivu. The first of seven children, he was forcibly recruited into a rebel faction army when he was 14, serving five months before he escaped. "One week later, the military came to fetch me, saying that I was a deserter," Jean reports. Escaping again, he went to Goma to secure a demobilization order so he could return home. He lived in Goma for two months at a UNICEF-assisted transit centre until his demobilization was secured.
