(Geneva Call) – Alphonse and Clovis were younger than 15 years old when they joined the combatants of two different armed groups in North Kivu, a region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Following humanitarian negotiations with Geneva Call, the commanders of these groups came to realize that using children during military operations was prohibited, and they facilitated their departure from the groups. The boys left their lives as combatants and reintegrated civilian life.
