Volunteering with ChildVoice is one of the most meaningful things I do. The work they do with at-risk, war-affected adolescent girls from Uganda, South Sudan, and Nigeria is so very important, and I feel blessed to be part of it. Working with the girls and then telling their stories to friends and family helps others understand how ChildVoice provides healing and hope in their lives.

I had the privilege of working with ChildVoice last November and the amazing work they are doing with these young women cannot be understated. They are teaching them to be the young woman that God intended them to be, teaching them valuable life skills, and helping get on their feet. The relationships built there are genuine and truly awe inspiring. They are making a difference and expanding their reach to many more areas in need.

I traveled to ChildVoice's Lukome Center and their operations at Imvepi Refugee Settlement in November 2018. The work they are doing to give war-affected girls and their children is amazing! Girls who have been traumatized by war, poverty, sexual exploitation, and human trafficking are receiving the loving care needed to heal and the vocational training necessary for them have a chance at better future for themselves and their children.

It was a life-changing experience to live at center and be a part of these girls lives, and lives of the staff. If you ever want to see God in action here on earth, contact ChildVoice and join one of their teams traveling to Uganda!

Words cannot describe the impact ChildVoice has had on those who visit and those who reside there. The young women at the center are served well and equipped to provide value in the form of love and education in their communites. This organization is a true blessing to everyone whose path intersects with it. A big "thank you" to ChildVoice and their staff for all they do.

I did not want to go and I knew i would never go back. So what happened to me? Seeing the Lukome center, getting to know the girls, and witnessing the staff’s dedication to them changed me. I hope they remember papa because I’ll remember them for a long time (or until I go back).

I just returned to the U.S. from the ChildVoice Lukome Centre in Lukodi, Uganda. It is amazing what they have done in just 10 years. I have had the opportunity to glimpse first-hand how God is using ChildVoice to bring hope to these girls. The experience has changed my life, and I intend to return again.

Child Voice is an exceptional organization! I have visited Uganda twice this year and each time opened my heart and my mind to the needs of others in a way that has changed my life forever. Even though I have been serving in the human services field for a long time, being at Child Voice renewed my passion and compassion for serving others. This is a 5 star organization.

My wife and I have served in ministry in mostly urban communities most recently in the Seaboard Region of New Hampshire. I had the privilege of travelling to Uganda with ChildVoice and it was hugely transformational for me personally and in my capacity as a Pastor. The organization provided in depth orientation, and information coupled with a demonstrated knowledge of the country's infrastructure and diligent care for those travelling abroad. The work they are doing in Uganda is exceptional, having witnessed the complexities of 3rd world developments and the challenges many non profits experience, ChildVoice is navigating those challenges and leading the way for sustainable program models. If you desire a life changing experience and a desire to view the world from a one of a kind vantage point, investing and partnering with ChildVoice will achieve that and more in your life.

ChildVoice International is a fantastic organization that empowers young women facing devastating social challenges resulting from the civil war in Northern Uganda. CVI's goal to restore and rehabilitate shines through at every level through the Ugandan leadership presence in the organization, the commitment to helping the women thrive outside of CVI whether in the village or city context, the use of land and societal integration as the women volunteer in the local village of Lukodi, and the depth of emotional, psychological, spiritual, and physical care the women receive during their residence. It is truly inspiring.

CVI commits to caring for these women long after they leave the center. They continue to maintain relationship, offer support, and even jobs if people feel called to work at the center for future "classes" of women entering the rehabilitation center.

What is most impressive is the way that CVI comes alongside women with dignity, true resources, and the phenomenal gift of love.

Lives are genuinely transformed at ChildVoice International. The care, love, and support that the organization provides for former child soldiers and young women truly is amazing. The empowerment that it provides the women by supporting them develop their skills not only as members of society, but also as young mothers truly is inspiring. Those who are unjustly displaced from society socially and economically deserve a chance to live normal lives just like everybody else; and ChildVoice International provides them with such opportunity.

Childvoice International has made incredible efforts toward rehabilitating women and their children who have experienced various levels of hardship in their lives. I love that they address physical, mental, and spiritual well-being, while preparing these women for successful integration back into their communities. And that they have had so much success doing so! The women are strengthened in so many ways, and their growth over time is truly tremendous.

Childvoice International is an incredible organization that truly improves the lives of many young women and children not only for the time they spend in the program, but for years to come. It is a place that allows war affected women and children to experience holistic healing and restoration. My time spent at CVI was rewarding, eye-opening, and life changing. I had an amazing opportunity to see a particular class of women and children twice - first at the beginning of their time at CVI and once again an entire year later. The transformation these women had experienced was absolutely undeniable. CVI is doing great work, lovingly caring for women and children, and leaving a lasting impact in Northern Uganda.

I volunteered with ChildVoice for a bit this summer. The organization showed an extremely strong and genuine interest in the well-being of the war-affected communities of Uganda and was truly doing amazing work, assisting those "silenced by war" through recovery, whether by means of therapy, education, or vocational training. It was an honor to serve with them.

I just returned from a summer internship with Child Voice. Rather than be a part of a large, established NGO, I really wanted to volunteer my time doing art therapy with a smaller grass-roots organization that deeply cared for the surrounding community and specifically worked with formerly-abducted individuals. Child Voice fit that bill perfectly and I can honestly say after 11 weeks of living in Gulu and visiting many different organizations and networks, that they are truly a unique operation. During my time there, Child Voice operated on a completely Ugandan based on-ground staff. Amazing! I had the privilege of meeting with girls who had graduated from Child Voice's program and I can't emphasize enough how much these girls' lives have been changed. Child Voice equips them with the life skills they need to provide for themselves and their children, but also to maintain their personal faith, hope, and dignity. This organization wants to give their girls a hand up and not a hand out. They strive to do what's best for the girls, community, and be culturally appropriate in every step they take instead of bringing in their western ideals and "do-it-our-way" attitude. I would definitely recommend volunteering your time with Child Voice, making a donation, or supporting them buy purchasing beads that the Child Voice bead women make.
