The Teens of Darfur
The Washington Post has a compelling article on rising rebelliousness of teens in Darfur, who have been existing in the dismal conditions of displacement camps.
There are 18 million kids now in the camps. Recently, a few took hostage some international aid workers, who were released three days later, unharmed. But something must be done.
These kids are like animals in a cage," said Bob Kitchen of the International Rescue Committee, who helped negotiate the release of the hostages and now plans to open five centers in Kalma to teach children skills such as mechanics and sewing.
