With the increasing intensity of conflict especially among the youth as witnessed over the last few months in the state of Jonglei, Emmanuel has conceptualized a series of youth sports and concert events beginning in May 2012 and ending in December 2012.
The purpose of these events is to bring together sport and music in a way that will allow youth from different ethnic groups and regions to relate to each other and shared visions of the development of their country — the idea is to use sport and music as a unifying theme.
The International Day of Peace, also known as the World Peace Day, occurs annually on 21 September. It is dedicated to peace and specifically the absence of war, such as might be occasioned by a temporary ceasefire in a combat zone. It is observed by many nations, political groups, military groups, and peoples. The first year this holiday was celebrated was 1981.
Become a Peace Soldier
A peace soldier is someone, anyone, who can activate awareness on those who abuse basic human rights. They are individuals who use education and understanding as their only weapons in generating a peaceful environment. They use their gifted skills, in music, medicine, sports, every area and possibility, to educate and bring peaceful change. Our nuclear bomb is love. Work with us in the explosion!

We Want Peace (WWP) has a simple goal: To raise awareness on the fundamental principles of justice, equality, unification and conflict prevention, through the power of music, worldwide. Spearheaded by the internationally renowned recording artist, actor, author and activist, Emmanuel Jal, the WWP campaign has gone from strength to strength since launching in December 2010. Kicking off the campaign, and in dedication to Southern Sudan’s historic referendum, Emmanuel released what has become the world wide music hit: ‘We Want Peace’. The uptempo feel good classic brings a sense of appreciation and entertainment to the importance of peace and security.
