In response to the needs of that arose after the devastating wars in D.R. Congo and Uganda — where more than 150,000 children have been abducted and millions more orphaned — Exile International was born.
Since 2008, EI has provided life-changing care to over 4,300 war-affected children!
Through holistic care programs addressing the needs of the spirit, mind, and body — rescued child soldiers and children orphaned by war are being restored. Additionally, young child survivors of war are being empowered to become leaders for peace through education, discipleship, and leadership development.
Today — program graduates include university graduates, engineers, counselors, pastors, skilled professionals, and community leaders — some of whom are now leading care programs in their own communities.
No longer constrained by the traumas of their past — these youth are becoming the leaders who will heal and transform their communities for Christ!
We are celebrating 10 Years of Healing through 2018! Be sure to follow us on Instagram Stories to join in on the celebration!
