Peace building and reconciliation
God-centred peace, reconciliation and unity within and across African nations and communities.
Peace and reconciliation goal
Strengthen God-centred peace, reconciliation and unity within and across African nations and communities.
Since our intervention in South African elections, and post-genocide support in Rwanda, the AE team has continued to update its skills in trauma skills and to continue to apply these in settings such as Burrundi, Rwanda, DRC and South Sudan.
It is a sad fact that trauma is a daily reality for many millions of people through the outcomes of war, disease, poverty and corruption. Bringing hope for a better future through trauma healing and reconciliation programs is an essential part of the AE ministry.
Bringing Peace and Reconciliation to African Nations in Conflict
The world’s youngest nation, has been plagued by unrest since its inception. Sadly, news of violent outbreaks has become all too familiar in South Sudan. African Enterprise was among the first responders to offer aid to refugees when tribal violence began in 2013.
Since then we have been walking with the citizens of Juba by leading a grassroots movement of godly leadership through peace and reconciliation trainings. The results from these initiatives have been inspiring but it is clear there is still much work to do. With over 50 years of experience in evangelism and peace-building African Enterprise passionately believes in power of godly leadership in transforming nations.
“OUR HOPE FOR SOUTH SUDAN IS THAT LEADERS WILL ARISE IN ALL SECTORS TO LEAD THE NATION FROM FRAGMENTATION TO UNITY, FROM DESPAIR TO HOPE, FROM PAIN TO HEALING. WE IN AE HAVE PLEDGED TO STAND BY THEM IN THIS HUGE TASK OF REBUILDING AND HEALING SOUTH SUDAN. WE CANNOT DO IT ALONE.”
What We Do
AE is actively engaging grassroots and national leaders as well as church leaders to speak about Peace & Reconciliation and the value of Righteous Leadership. During our workshops we address the following issues:
- The role of church, youth, women and civic leaders’ in peace building, & reconciliation in South Sudan.
- Trauma Healing.
- Psychosocial support for children and victims of conflicts.
- God’s original intention for relationships.
- The power of prejudice.
- Alternative dispute resolution.
- Stress Management especially for the police & military officers.

PARTNERING WITH NATIONAL LEADERS
AE has been working with political leaders at both National and State Legislative Assemblies. We’ve played a pivotal role in planning and mobilizing the National Prayer Breakfast in Juba. As a result of this effort a group of Christian Parliament Members meet weekly to pray for peace in their nation.
Recently the new Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Antony Makana has formally requested that African Enterprise come alongside his parliament in the task of rebuilding and reconciling the nation of South Sudan and in enhancing good values for governance among its leadership.
African Enterprise has been granted land in Juba and is in the process of building a peace and reconciliation school. The School will give local students a chance to study theology and different trades as well as running peace and reconciliation training throughout the year for community leaders.
