International year of youth 2011

Every year on 12 August, International Youth Day, communities throughout the world come together to celebrate the positive contributions young people make to society. At Freedom from Torture we want every day to be about celebrating young people and particularly the amazing young torture survivors we work with who are rebuilding their lives in the UK having experienced great trauma. Hear from them in their own words and about the issues they want to tell you about – from their journeys to the UK to life now.
