We experienced true inspiration during our visit to Jal Gua Cafe.

The restaurant opened its doors in April 2016 with the aim to be a hub for activists as well as give people a voice against oppression and abuse. This voice is loudest from Emmanuel Jal, the owner of Jal Gua Cafe. The name means "walk in peace" in the Naath language of East Africa. Emmanuel Jal is a South Sudanese-Canadian musician, actor, former child soldier, and political activist and author of War Child: A Child Soldier's

Emmanuel Jal is a South Sudanese-Canadian musician, actor, former child soldier, and political activist and author of War Child: A Child Soldier's Story.

His story starts in South Sudan where he was forced to become a child solider at age 8. But you would never know this if you met Emmanuel in person. He will inspire with his message - Peaceful Body equals Peaceful Mind. This message is prominent all over the restaurant. When asked what the future holds, the answer I received was simple, Jal Gua Cafe intends to promote healthy and clean eating all across Toronto.

Some of the cafe's proceeds go to a charity Jal founded that builds schools in East Africa and provides scholarships for Sudanese war survivors in refugee camps.

Please join us this week as we share our experience at Jal Gua Cafe.
