Oil, acrylic and pencil on canvas, 39.4 in x 59.1 in.

I am 7 years old
It's my birthday tomorrow and I hope that I get lots of presents. My girlfriends say I'm spoilt but they're really secretly jealous. It is true that my Mum and Dad always give me what I want and, if they don't, I make a fuss and complain until they give in. But I'm worth it. My father is my biggest fan and my mother is really proud of me.

Kwakou from Sierra Leone
"I got my first UZI when I was nine"
Oil, acrylic and pencil on canvas, 39.4 in x 59.1 in.


I am 7 years old
I want to be like other kids. But how can I? Because I am no one's child. I still dream about a boy from my village that I shot. Then he talks to me and says 'you hurt me for nothing!'



Kagame from Rwanda
Oil, acrylic and pencil on canvas, 39.4 in x 59.1 in.


I am 13 years old.
I went to school every day in Kigali. But then, in 1994, the war began. On the way to school we had to hide in the hospital because of the violence. Once soldiers came and divided us into groups. For our safety, they said. But the groups were made to divide us up for the army because we were taken away to the training camp where we had to stay for 3 weeks. There we had to fight and we got orders to protect the city. I really didn't want to.



Labeeb from Palestine
Oil, acrylic and pencil on canvas, 39.4 in x 59.1 in.


I am 2 years old
This picture of me is really famous. It was taken at a family party when someone dressed me up as a 'suicide bomber'. When the picture was discovered by the Israeli army, it was distributed around the world and was in all the newspapers. Many people thought it was bad that I wore the costume, but it's really normal here to have our pictures taken in uniforms and with play pistols.

Hola from Ethiopia
Oil, acrylic and pencil on canvas, 39.4 in x 59.1 in.


I am 6 years old
I ran away from home because I was being beaten. Nobody looked after me except for my grandmother. She got sick and I met a boy from a rebel army. I went with him and now I work in the training camp. I still have problems with being homesick.




Minette from Australia
Oil, acrylic and pencil on canvas, 39.4 in x 59.1 in.


I am 2 years old
This picture of me is really famous. It was taken by my aunt during a family party. Everyone was surprised because they were my first steps. I walked really late because I found it easier to roll or crawl. Till I wanted to grab a present, I couldn't, so I began to walk.

Jordan from Israel
Oil, acrylic and pencil on canvas, 39.4 in x 59.1 in.

I am 7 years old
I got this cool cap from my mother. When I put it on, I feel really important. I hope that I will be a hero when I am 14 or 15. Because then I can protect my family and my country. Sometimes they also attach a fake bomb to me with a belt.
My mother is really proud of me.



Lotte from Holland
Oil, acrylic and pencil on canvas, 39.4 in x 59.1 in.

I am 3 years old
This is an old picture of me in my ski suit. Mum, dad and I were on our first winter vacation. I still remember that we drove over very high mountains. One time we went so far and high that I got scared. Sometimes I forgot where my home was.

Marti from Austria

I am 12 years old
This is my dog Buck and the gun that my father gave me for Christmas. My father and grandfather have been taking me hunting since I could walk. They taught me how to handle guns by having me take them apart and then put them back together again. I shot my first deer when I was 11.
