Renewing Commitment to End Recruitment of Children Into War
Narrator: At a high level conference in New York, UNICEF Executive Director, Anthony Lake asked world leaders to make a sustained commitment to helping UNICEF and its partners release children from armed conflict and support them on their return home.
Anthony Lake: Girls especially need these services when they return home often carry, not only the emotional scars and sexual abuse but the baby is born as a result and the stigma that flows from both.
The Paris Commitments and Principles provide the framework to guarantee the rights of children to their childhoods to monitor violations of those rights and to investigate and prosecute those who recruit children for use by armed forces.
Just as important, they provide invaluable guidance to the organization and people who actively seek these children’s release and works so hard to help them return to their communities and lead productive lives.
Over half of the UN members, states support the Paris Commitments. Today, we are very glad to welcome 11 new endorsements bringing the total number to 95. It is time to finish the job by establishing the early, flexible and sustained funding mechanisms we need to ensure that the Paris Commitments and Principles are honored by action. I repeat ‘action’.
So today, we call on all member states to support actively and generously our efforts to fully implement the Paris Commitments and the Paris Principles. Even a small investment can yield huge benefits in the lives of these children and they desperately need our help.
