EI Graduate and Leader for Peace!

Jackson

EI graduate | rescued child soldier | leader for peace

Though once a child soldier, Jackson is NOT defined by his past. Jackson is a graduate of EI’s program and is a successful entrepreneur working in carpentry – building furniture and even homes! He also works part time at an EI center in Congo teaching carpentry to youth.

In 2017, several program graduates who apprenticed under Jackson started their own carpentry business. We are incredibly proud of these young men and their entrepreneurial spirits! Two of these young men are using their workshop to train even more of EI’s youth with skills that will empower them to launch into productive lives!

By teaching viable skills to youth, EI is providing them with opportunities to succeed and thrive in their communities – just like Jackson!

This is just one of the ways we are seeing God redeeming the lives of rescued child soldiers… and empowering them to impact the lives of others.
