Empowering Child Survivors of War to Become Leaders for Peace
From vision to reality
In response to the urgent needs Bethany had witnessed and researched the devastating wars in Uganda and D.R. Congo — where more than 100,000 children have been abducted — Exile International was born.
Since 2008, Exile has provided life-changing care to over 6,700 war-affected children!
Through holistic care programs addressing the needs of the spirit, mind, and body — rescued child soldiers and orphaned children are being restored. Additionally, young survivors are being empowered to become leaders for peace through education, discipleship, and leadership development.
Program graduates include university students, 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 — they are becoming the leaders who will heal and transform communities.
