Help us finish raising the funds for phase one of our Kabala Community Centre project – a rehabilitation centre for former child soldiers in Sierra Leone.

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 third annual “Trading a Gun for a Guitar” event will be held at the St. James Community Square in Vancouver on November 17th, at 6:30pm.
We are 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.
