From Survivors to Leaders
“It's the children the world almost breaks who grow up to save it.”
- Frank Warren
Peace Clubs were launched in 2012 with a vision to restore rescued child soldiers and former sex slaves through on-going healing and peace-building groups. Child survivors do not have to be defined by their past. Yet, most need help recovering from chronic trauma and finding hope for the future.
Lives are being transformed! Child survivors are healing their wounds of trauma and being empowered to become leaders. Graduates from the program are reintegrating into their communities and are now leading Village Peace Clubs… leading others towards reconciliation and peace.
