JOIN THE MOVEMENT
War Will Never Have the Last Word
War steals millions of childhoods each year. With your help, we can end cycles of violence by restoring lives and equipping the next generation to lead their communities toward peace and reconciliation.
Join us to empower rescued child soldiers and children orphaned by war to become leaders for peace through art-focused trauma care and holistic rehabilitation programs. Because every child deserves a chance to thrive!
WHY WE EXIST
There are over 250,000 child soldiers in the world today.
We're bringing healing and breaking the cycle.
Fourteen-year-old Shalom was abducted at gunpoint by rebel fighters. Taken from his family and home, Shalom was enslaved by the rebels — forced to commit horrific acts of violence as a child soldier.
Praise the Lord; He had greater plans in store.
Rescued by UN Peacekeepers, church leaders connected Shalom to Exile International, where he received holistic care from counselors and mentors. Experiencing God's miraculous redemption — he began leading healing groups with war-affected youth in his villages after graduating Exile's programs.

Holistic, Christ-Centered Rehabilitation
Local counselors use a Christ-centered, curricula-based model called the HOPE Initiative to help youth overcome trauma compounded by war!
Focused on healing spirits, minds, and bodies — Exile's comprehensive programming meets the mental, emotional, and physical needs of children wounded by war through art-focused trauma care, leadership development, and so much more!
Art-Focused Trauma Care
Music, dance, drama, and more provide safe avenues for children to process trauma that may be too challenging to express in words.
Holistic care programs offer youth education, leadership development, peace-building skills training, discipleship, and basic needs.
