Trading a Gun for a Guitar:
Innocence Lost Foundation is hosting a large benefit concert and silent auction to raise funds and awareness for former child soldiers. Our second annual “Trading a Gun for a Guitar” event will be held at the St. James Community Square in Vancouver on October 23rd, 2016, at 6pm.
We are currently fundraising for our first project: a community centre to be built in Kabala, Sierra Leone, West Africa. One of our founders, Fazineh Keita, was a child soldier during that country’s civil war, and knows well the after-effects and healing that need to happen. Our goal is to provide this community with a medical clinic, a clean water well, food, education, skills training and art and sport therapy programs to give opportunities and break the cycles of violence and poverty from being passed down generationally. All money raised at this event will go to this project.
We received charity registration in Canada this June! Tax receipts can now be issued for all direct donations!
Thank-you for your support!
