Please give whatever you can and support Invisible Children. This is such an amazing, moving cause and every dollar will be matched up to $50K.
The mission of Invisible Children is bold: to prevent the large rebel force - led by Kony - from continuing their abduction of children and creation of child-soldiers. Over 30,000 children have been abducted in Uganda since 1986. Many of these kids have been trained and transformed into child-soldiers. The details of what happens are alarming and brutal. Each and every dollar will help to stop this inhumanity.
Invisible Children rebuilds schools devastated by war, benefiting over 8,400 Ugandan youth in the areas of water and sanitation, books and equipment, refurbishment of structures, teacher support, and technology and power.
On a larger scale, they're implementing micro-economic initiatives that are impacting 360 Ugandan’s in transition from internally displaced camps to their original homes as well as 13 formerly abducted child mothers who are now self-sufficient through our tailoring center that provides training in savings, investment, numeracy, literacy and health. To prioritize and understand the needs of the community, the Uganda staff is 95% Ugandan.
I truly believe that the work of Invisible Children is the key to tackling enormous problems in East Africa, but they need more support.
