Children and Youth

Throughout the world, wherever there is conflict or poverty, it is most likely the children and adolescents who are the most vulnerable.

Pulitzer Center journalists examine the challenges children face—and explore some of the solutions. They detail the lives of children in conflict and the rehabilitation of child soldiers, the struggle of girls to obtain an education coupled with their determination and perseverance, the risks young refugees take as they leave home—and the opportunities afforded to some.
