THE STORY:

Peace Ambassadors International, Inc. wrote -

Help support our Peace Ambassador Jane Ekayu's mission and program to bring peace to Uganda.


“Healing is beginning.  It’s a process.  It’s not going to be overnight, but we know that when the children come to a place where they can forgive, they find peace, and that peace inside them goes out to the next person around them.  It then goes out to their community, then to their country and then overflows to the world.” - Jane Ekayu

 

Jane Ekayu is a Ugandan counselor and trauma therpaist based in Lira.  For more than a decade, Jane has helped thousands of former child soldiers, children born in captivity, and children who have lost parents to war.  Jane supports children affected by war and nurtures their long-term healing and empowerment. 

 

More than 65,000 children in the northern region of Uganda were forcibly abducted and recruited into Joseph Kony's Ugandan guerrilla militia known as the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). During its two-decade long insurgency, most of these children were severely beaten, many were forced to kill, and nearly ten percent were forced to murder a family member or friend. Children were the prime target as they could easily be manipulated into obedient, cheap, and disposable soldiers; children were also used as human shields and informants. The impact has been devastating.

 

Jane and her team provide a unique, holistic healing program centered around reconciliation and forgiveness. The program includes art therapy, yoga, dance, theatre, counseling, education, and vocational training.  Through the power of love and forgiveness, this extraordinary program has transformed children of war into inspiring ambassadors for global peace.

 

Jane Ekayu frequently travels across the globe to speak about child advocacy and human rights for former child soldiers, as well as economic development for women in emerging economies.  She has presented in the United Nations General Assembly Hall in New York, at the International Criminal Court in Hague, and she continues to deliver her message of peace and empowerment to organizations, schools, and churches worldwide.

 

This fundrasier is to help support Jane's entrepreneurial project to provide income for abducted mothers and their children born in captivity.
