An international campaign supported by Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, and other organizations around the world
Since 2002 it has been illegal around the world to use children as soldiers. Unfortunately, the number of child soldiers has hardly changed since then. There are still about 300,000 children used in adults’ wars in at least 30 countries.
In order to protest this tragedy, more than 350,000 red handprints have been collected in over 40 countries worldwide. And this campaign is continuing – the goal is a million handprints!
We ask adults and especially children and adolescents to collect prints of red hands in schools, faith communities, public places, and in city and state buildings.
