‘Agape’ is a reconciliation project among victims of the armed conflict in Colombia and child-soldiers who, legally, are also victims of the armed conflict. The project was realised fully by volunteers, who are kidnap victims, refugees, students and other members of the Colombian community in Montreal, Canada. The paper presents the results of this project: the contribution of the child-soldiers to the healing process of many of the direct victims of the war, as well as implications of the project for former child-soldiers, other victims of the war, and all other community members involved. The paper concludes by asserting the importance of the participation of the community in the search for solutions to armed conflict.
