Building Young Peacemakers in DR Congo
Exile International’s care programs exist because war has torn children from homes — forcing children to participate in violence and leaving others orphaned. In and around Goma, D.R. Congo, 50-200 children are being rescued each month. Without proper care, most become street children or return to rebel armies. Through holistic care programs, we are changing that.
One of 16 Exile International care programs, this center provides a safe place for 158 rescued child soldiers and children orphaned by war to traverse the complex road of healing and rehabilitation.
Through this long-term, comprehensive care, child survivors are being transformed! Children are being restored and empowered to become leaders for peace. Child survivors are becoming leaders — leading peers and communities towards peace, forgiveness and reconciliation.
