Our vision is to build the first ‘Emma’ Academy in honour of the British aid worker; who rescued Emmanuel from his life as a child soldier, and placed him in school for the first time. Our belief system is based on Emmanuel’s understanding that even the most traumatised person can reach their potential if given learning opportunities in a safe, creative environment where their well-being and mental health is a primary focus.
'Education offers our mind to a world of infinite possibilities, it powers our imagination, it increases our mental power and it adds values in our life.' Emmanuel Jal
‘My Life is Art‘ are the daily principles and practices Emmanuel Jal designed to cultivate purpose & leadership and will be embedded into the curriculum of the school. These practices will be central to our learning and how we grow as individuals and a team.
