My Life is Art - Youth Leadership Retreat,

Kakuma, Turkana County, Kenya Kakuma, Turkana County, Kenya

  • About the event

    The My Life is Art practice was developed by Emmanuel Jal to support his own healing and growth from childhood as a child soldier from South Sudan.

    Jal, who is now an international recording artist, activist and philanthropist, shares his teaching though My Life is Art - a community designed to support people in finding their purpose and ultimately create a higher state of conscious global awakening.

    The MLIA program helps people to own their minds, increase their mental power, and find their purpose; discovering what they were created to do on earth while creating habits and beliefs to support a journey to success.

    We offer skills and tools that these leaders need to live a purpose-driven and inspired life.

    We provide space for rest and reflection and community connection and inspiration.

    With a lot of clutter in the refugee camp, traumatic experiences due to war, it is imperative to embark on a journey to help young people reclaim their minds to be more efficient and productive. We will take them on this journey through lecture, small group work, movement (yoga, YAYA, hiking), personal reflection and meditation. 


    This year we are introducing a new program  called the Impact Youth Retreat. With your support we will be taking a group of 30 students and youth leaders in the camp on a seven-day retreat facilitated by Emmanuel and a team of mentors. As a child solider who escaped the tragedies of war there is no better person to mentor and teach the youth of Kakuma the principles of the My Life is Art program.

    We will be providing the youth community connection, skills training and inspiration. This is a very special and unique opportunity for the youth to spend time one on one time with Emmanuel who himself lived in the camp and has transformed his life through the principles and practice the My Life is Art Program. This will be a life-changing event and unique opportunity for the youth leaders that you can be apart of. 

    Retreat Goals:


    1. To leave participants inspired by a role model from a similar background 

    2.To create and build community by bringing together a diverse group of leading minds
