Emmanuel Jal believes that the pathway to peace is through education.
He encourages students to join his ‘Lose to Win’ challenge and see how they can lose something, in order to win for the greater good and make a positive change for the world at large. The concept of ‘Lose to Win’ is to challenge young people on how they can lose something to better themselves and also to fundraise for young people who have no access to education. Any funds raised through the ‘Lose to Win’ challenge goes directly to 3 charities (including Emmanuel’s own), which provide a rounded education for young people in East Africa: Gua Africa, My Start, and Africa Yoga Project.
Pick up a challenge. It could be giving up meat for 30 days, coffee, snacks, taxi rides, etc.

MY START for FILM AID INTERNATIONAL
My Start provides creative art workshops for young people in refugee camps; so they can communicate their experiences through Art, Photography and Film. The Art work produced at the camps are then exhibited in schools as a powerful resource for students to learn more about the issues surrounding conflict, migration and displacement, and what it means to be a global citizen.
