House Without Windows  documents the challenges facing children in one of the worst countries in the world to be a child: Central African Republic. Even before the resurgence of conflict in recent years, the country’s infrastructure had been crippled by decades of misrule, corruption and countless coups. So the smouldering conflict in the country continues to exacerbate this already dire situation where over half of the 2.3 million people affected are children – and, in a country where 40% of the population are under 15, the conflict will have a significant ripple effect on CAR’s future development.

The comic captures the stories of kids orphaned and displaced by war, forcing many to work in diamond mines or to suspend their education, and causing many to become sick due to a lack of food and limited access to health services.
