Meet Janet, Age 13, Central African Republic


"It was about 10 a.m. and we were taking exams when the militia came to our school. They shut the door on secondary students. It was at that point the rest of us ran away." - Janet

Janet was forced to flee her village in the Central African Republic. "They killed all the students in the secondary class. Not one of them survived." Janet fled to the church. But the militia set the church on fire, killing many people and she had to flee again. "So we came to this place." Janet fled to a camp for internally displaced people with her mother.
