About Invisible Children:
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. 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.
