 I was born in Tonj and grew up in South Sudan in the midst of war before I was rescued and taken to Kenya. Now I live in Toronto, Canada - I'm finally a Canadian Citizen! My memories and life as a child soldier growing up in South Sudan and my lowest point was where we embarked on a journey and only 16 out of 300 survived and I was nearly tempted to eat my friend because we were starving. This was the lowest point of my life, but it's given me the potential energy to propel me forwards. This formative memory shaped my life, has given me purpose and a desire to be part of a solution and to restore balance. I'm a recording artist and activist and I use experiences for social emotional learning to create conscious global awakening through the Arts, Business and Philanthropy.

My purpose is spreading acts of kindness, be part of a solution and contribute to restore balance and give without expecting anything in return. I want to create experiences that give people joy and connect them with their purpose to increase their mental power and create the life they want to see.

 

This piece tells our story of transformation from bombs into modern artifacts, dropped + made in Laos.

To hold our very special be the love bracelets, Emmanuel’s sister and creative collaborator, Nyaruach, made special pouches with artisans in Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya. Each piece is hand embroidered with thread and beading

 

 Each piece gives back to support traditional Laotian artisan livelihoods, village development, community endeavors and further de-mining efforts.

Your purchase contributes to MAG (Mines Advisory Group) to safely & expertly clear some of the 80 million unexploded bombs contaminating land in Laos.

$65 clears 3m2 of Laotian landscape
