Invisible Children friend Josh Weller has a video for his new song, and it’s quite amazing.
Watch the British singer fish for dates in his new clip for “I Forgot To Tell You You’re Beautiful.”
Invisible Children doesn’t stop at documenting atrocities or activating youth or protecting civilians or rehabilitating post-conflict communities. We do it all. And we do it through a four-part model that focuses exclusively on the LRA conflict, addressing it in its entirety: immediate needs and long-term effects. One of the four parts of the comprehensive model is Protection.
Due to the lack of infrastructure in the region, communities throughout central Africa are completely isolated. Our Protection initiatives include building and expanding radio networks that warn remote communities of LRA attacks, and also encouraging the LRA to defect peacefully through broadcasting personalized radio messages and dispersing defection fliers.
Invisible Children Music has the exclusive premiere of Belgium’s newest band I will, I swear.
Watch the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind-esque clip for their new single “Sleep,” then read our interview with band member Jonathan over on our blog.
Jamila Blake, thank you for everything you’ve ever done for those affected by LRA violence.
We love our supporters, and this is why.
WASH provides rural communities in northern Uganda with access to safe drinking water and improves the sanitation and hygiene of group members, their households, and the community. The initiative includes drilling safe water points, appointing a “water user committee” to maintain the water point, and training community members on basic health practices.
The Legacy Scholarship Program provides merit-based scholarships and mentoring to motivated and talented secondary and university students from northern Uganda who were affected by the LRA conflict. Through increased access to secondary, university, and vocational education, as well as mentoring, the program is educating the next generation of leaders in northern Uganda.
Since 2005, the LRA has been poaching elephants in Garamba National Park and using the elephants’ ivory to fund their operations and continue killing innocent civilians in central Africa. Through defection flier messaging, we are directly targeting groups in the park, asking them to lay down their arms and peacefully surrender. 79% of defectors in the past year have cited these fliers as influential in their escape.
