Painting Peace with Former Child Soldiers

"A desire of my heart is that from all what we have gone through in Northern Uganda or in Uganda as a whole, we should have leaders who are willing to have a peaceful resolution, whatever conflict is among them"
Exile International (empowering children of war to become leaders for peace) partnered with with Jeremy Cowart to create collaborative art pieces with LRA child survivors that will be sold to fund/support art and rehabilitative care programs through their organization.
Project Goals:
- Fostering a healing art and therapeutic process for 7 children
 - Capturing their story on film to further amplify their stories of healing and reducing stigmas toward former LRA child soldiers within their communities
- Supporting art therapy and rehabilitative care programs in Northern Uganda and DR Congo
“We are seeing them come to life. We are watching them be renewed.” -- Jeremy Cowart
