Goats in a child’s healing journey!
Did you know that even goats can play a role in a child’s healing journey? In addition to the art-focused trauma care that each child receives, many of the children in Exile’s programs take care of livestock as a part of their holistic rehabilitation.
You may ask “Why animals?” Exile’s local leaders have seen an incredible response among war-affected youth when they are given the responsibility of caring for an animal. When a child survivor of war is given this opportunity, the effect is significant. They are more likely to choose healthy ways to navigate their difficult and complex emotions resulting from the traumas of war they’ve endured.
We hope you feel confident knowing your partnership with Exile enables unique opportunities for healing in the lives of child survivors of war!
