Geographic areas served: Worldwide

Programs: ETHOS
We believe in the equal and inherent value of all human life.
We believe that a worldview bound by borders is outdated
and that stopping injustice anywhere is the responsibility of humanity everywhere.

CONTEXT
Joseph Kony and the Lord’s Resistance Army have been abducting, killing, and displacing civilians in East and central Africa since 1987. We first encountered these atrocities in northern Uganda in 2003 when we met a boy named Jacob who feared for his life and a woman named Jolly who had a vision for a better future. Together, we promised Jacob that we would do whatever we could to stop Joseph Kony and the LRA. Invisible Children was founded in 2004 to fulfill that promise.

MODEL
Invisible Children focuses exclusively on the LRA conflict through an integrated four-part model
that addresses the problem in its entirety: immediate needs and long-term effects.

MEDIA
We create films to document LRA atrocities, introduce new audiences to the conflict, and inspire global action.

MOBILIZATION
We mobilize massive groups of people to support and advance international efforts to end LRA atrocities.

PROTECTION
We work with regional partners to build and expand systems that warn remote communities of LRA attacks
and encourage members of the LRA to peacefully surrender.

RECOVERY
We work to rehabilitate children directly affected by the LRA and invest in education and economic recovery programs in the post-conflict region to promote lasting peace.

Mission:
Invisible Children exists to bring a permanent end to LRA atrocities. The mission is supported by our program areas - Media, Mobilization, Protection and Recovery.
Results:
81.48% of our revenue went to our programs in FY 2012

The individuals that make up the team are some of the most inspiring and quirky people I've ever met. There are very few organizations I trust as much as Invisible Children, and their ... more »

I have been a volunteer, employee and board member for various non-profits over the past 32 years. Invisible Children has captured my heart and the hearts of my husband and four adult children! Each opportunity to volunteer has been a gift to us! Over the past 10 years I have seen IC grow and change... more »
My 11 year old son was inspired by the KONY 2012 video and saved his allowance for months, which we sent to Invisible Children. He was heartbroken and discouraged to find out several months later that the money does not go to help the children, but rather to an organization that acts as lobbyists... more »
