“I was really moved by the young women’s faith and perseverance despite all that they had suffered. Their stories empowered me to take action and also deepen my relationship with God.”
True stories written by and for former girl child soldiers will open your eyes to God’s presence, even amid great tragedy, and inspire your faith like never before.
Enduring the Night shares the heartrending journey from darkness to light, as told by a young woman named Grace and other former child soldiers and survivors of human trafficking. The powerful stories and haunting photography shine a light on issues of oppression and gender-based violence currently facing girls—not only in northern Uganda but also around the world. Even as ChildVoice helps Grace’s community heal from the destruction of war, the atrocities continue today across the borders as the Lord’s Resistance Army terrorizes, abducts, and viciously attacks people throughout East and Central Africa. In areas of conflict worldwide, people increasingly use children as instruments of war. The need for intervention is great and the time for action is now.
100% of the proceeds from the sales of Enduring the Night benefit war-affected women through supportive services in northern Uganda.
