Be the Love: Be the Solution.

 As part of the We Want Peace movement; to spread the message of peace and love.

 “I believe to make our world better, each and every individual has to be the love and be the solution. The world is in a crisis, there seems to be more divides than ever. Some are crippled by poverty, others by depression, lack of purpose, worry and fear of failure. This process has put most people in a “survival state” as they try to figure out a way to obtain their peace of mind and in the process they end up hurting others and creating divides or conflict with people outside of their own identity and communities. We can’t point fingers at others to lead the change, the power is in our hands and the solution is within all of us. I believe each and every person has the power to illuminate themselves and the world, each and every person can be the love, be the light, be the peace, be the joy, be the source and be the solution.”   Emmanuel Jal


The Thoughts:

Emmanuel Jal is a former child soldier from South Sudan, turned international peace activist, musician and social entrepreneur. He uses his story and music to create global conscious awakening through social emotional learning and the arts. Over the past few years Emmanuel has been an undertaking and increasing study of self-learning: exploring what it means to be peaceful and successful. He feels that the key to this is by finding a purpose, whether we are rich or poor, it is to step out and do something greater than ourselves. Being part of a community – making connections – taking risks – giving and receiving love without expectation. 


The Action:

Emmanuel and Xavier Rudd have joined forces to produce a captivating anthem that will be available for free download, worldwide. Emmanuel will be conducting an educational and leadership tour with schools and communities across the globe. Following on from his We Want Peace educational tours Emmanuel will also embark on a series of leadership workshops around the theme ‘My Life is Art’. He will be conducting this in the corporate arena, schools, universities, prisons, conflict areas and refugee camps engaging with leaders and teachers from all sectors of society – spreading the message of peace and love through the arts, education, meditation and physical practice.




Our call to action as you join our campaign is by simply asking you to take up a challenge by performing an act of kindness, or generosity without expecting any thing in return.

We are partnering with Social Media app - Be Human.  www.behuman.com


Be Human enables social media users to inspire each other through basic acts of consciousness. The simplest forms of just sharing a thought can help inspire change for a better community and world.


Through our campaign: song, programs, press and social media engagement we are looking at connecting with 100 million people across the world to spread peace and love.


Educational Tour:

100 | 100 | 100

100 hosts to educate 100 refugee youth, ignite 100 school visits and impact 10,000 young people though story telling.


 We are looking for 100 hosts to curate purpose driven, intimate events in their homes or offices. At these events Emmanuel Jal will share his story for social emotional learning and spark conversation on purpose.  In turn we ask that the hosts secure funds to put 100 young refugees in school and support 100 ‘Be the love’ school visits, which will impact 10,000 students.


Purpose of the event:

1.  To educate, inspire and engage youth across the globe through the ‘Be The Love’ School Tours.  These tours will feature Emmanuel Jal sharing his story and experiences for social emotional learning through the arts.  The tours will invite young people to discover their purpose, take a challenge to be the love, be the solution and be the change they want to see. 


2.  To transform the lives of young people in Kakuma refugee camp who have little to no access to education by providing them with scholarships for high school through Emmanuel Jals charity, Gua Africa  www.gua-africa.org. Gua Africa is a charity that works with individuals, families and communities to help them overcome the effect of war and poverty through education.


Mission Edutainment:

a)    Providing experiences that are inspiring, educating and entertaining.

b)   Generating positive emotions that can manage our mental and physical state.



To secure funds to support schooling for young refugees in East Africa and educational experiences through Emmanuel’s ‘Be the Love’ school tours.

Each event will raise funds to be split 50/50 between Gua Africa and Be the Love school school tour.


How does it work

The host will invite their friends, family and colleagues and charge them a ticket that will collectively reach a target amount.
