Fabrice

Fabrice, 16 years old, was a former child soldier. “During the time I was with the armed group, there were a lot of difficulties we had to go through,” remembered. He lives in the transit center CAJED in Goma. There he learns how to play the Brazilian martial art Capoeira. Since 2014, Capoeira was introduced in the DRC by UNICEF as a powerful tool to help demobilized children and adolescents victims of violence.
