In the Central African Republic, children grow up in a state of insecurity, poverty, and malnutrition. The 2013 conflict only exacerbated this situation. The Central African Republic has become what many call "a house without windows." Using embedded QR codes, this graphic novel allows readers to scan and watch immersive 360 videos to witness first-hand the effects of war on children in Central African Republic. Children forced to work in diamond mines, grow up in refugee camps, or live on the streets of Bangui.
