Program areas at Invisible Children

Protection: Invisible Children focuses on the protection of civilians from violence through connecting people to each other and the outside world, violence prevention, and community resilience. Over the past decade, Invisible Children has connected remote communities in central africa through its early warning system, facilitating twice-daily calls among communities in one of the world's most insecure places, and thus increasing the safety of more than 300,000 people. Thousands of incidents of armed group activity reported by these communities through the early warning system have been reported by Invisible Children's crisis tracker in near-real time, an innovative crisis-mapping social web platform, ensuring the world cannot ignore the safety issues facing these vulnerable populations. Invisible Children has also promoted the safe surrender of members of the lord's resistance army, contributing to more than a 90% reduction in violence over the past decade, and helped to facilitate their journey back home.

Awareness and advocacy: Invisible Children focuses on the advancement of effective policies through mobilizing groups of people to support international efforts that make Children and families safer and through ensuring that affected populations are able to advocate for the needs of their community. Over the last decade, millions of americans and international advocates have raised their voices about the violence occurring in central africa and have called on their elected officials to play their part in enhancing the safety of affected communities. Because of the dedicated work of these activists, we've seen our leaders take a number of significant actions to help end violence and support the recovery of affected communities.
