'For Sustainable Peace, We Need to Go Beyond the Enemy Line'

Victor Ochen, the Founder and Executive Director of the African Youth Initiative Network, tells AllAfrica how his campaign against the recruitment of child soldiers amid the war in South Sudan helped over 2,000 millitia groups put down their arms and walk away to join other refugees in Uganda. See Part 1: 'Uprooting the Seeds of Conflict & Violence Key to Peacebuilding'. AllAfrica's reporting on peacebuilding is supported by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York.



Victor Ochen, on the mic, is the Founder and Executive Director for AYINET.
