Event description

Description

We Want Peace has a simple goal: To raise awareness on the fundamental principles of justice, equality, and freedom for all, through the power of music, worldwide. The Peace Concert, held on September 21, 2016, will be to raise conscious awakening through story-telling. Emmanuel Jal will be speaking and performing along with musicians and storytellers Lady Parul, Mariatu Kamara, Preeti Chopra, and special guests. Together they will share their incredible stories of strength, forgiveness and peace.


Proceeds will go to Gua Africa, founded by Emmanuel, to help support young people from South Sudan who are fleeing the country because of war. Gua Africa believes that giving everyone access to education will lead to an increase in individuals generating their own income and more stable society. Its projects combine scholarship and feeding programmes and teaching in refugee camps, all underpinned by a philosophy of peace and education and a dedication to community income generation.
