During our 2017 Remembrance Ceremony, the Child Soldier wreath was laid by Fazineh Keita, former child soldier from the Sierra Leone civil war.
Fazineh Keita and Ava Vanderstarren founded the Innocence Lost Foundataion which is committed to building resource and rehabilitation centres for child soldiers and youth in Africa. Their pilot project is a community center in Kabala, Sierra Leone, West Africa. The center will provide former child soldiers access to food and water, art and sport therapy, counselling, skills training and education to create jobs, and provide resources to further the country and people.
