Sierra Leone. Northern province. Port Loko. Edna Bangoura graduates as a metal worker on a one year program from the Caritas trainees. She is in the middle of the group and leads their walking rhythm. She, like all the others girls, wears a white dress and was kidnapped  by the RUF (Revolutionary United Front) rebels when she was still a child. She was raped, forced to be a soldier, had to fight and kill during the war. © 2002 Didier Ruef
