The Invisible Children Inc. is a not-for profit organization committed to transforming apathy into activism and ending the longest running war in Africa.
April 25th 2009 marked the start of a movement in over 100 cities across more than ten countries called the RESCUE. It’s aim, to bring attention to the plight of the children abducted and forced to fight as soldiers in Central East Africa in the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA)
Supporters attending the RESCUE volunteered to ‘abduct themselves for the abducted’ travelling by foot to a pre-determined location in their city that served as their “LRA Camp”. There, they remained ‘abducted’ until a person of great influence or cultural significance (the mogul) arrives and ‘RESCUES’ them by making a public statement on behalf of the child soldiers.
The ultimate aim? The committment from governments and international bodies to develop a strategy and support existing efforts to rescue the child soldiers abducted by the LRA and to rescue the child soldiers and bring Joseph Kony to justice for his unspeakable crimes against humanity and his continued unwillingness to sign peace.
In many cities across the world including the USA, CANADA and the UK, youth are still waiting to be RESCUED!
