Lieutenant General Roméo Dallaire was first exposed to the use of child soldiers during the 1994 Rwandan genocide (where he served as Force Commander of the UN mission). He subsequently committed the rest of his life to ending the use of children in armed conflict.

He founded The Roméo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative, at Dalhousie University, to break new ground in halting this atrocity. The Dallaire Initiative partners with military, police and peacekeeping forces, equipping them with tools to prevent the recruitment of child soldiers.
