Mission

INVISIBLE CHILDREN EXISTS TO BRING A PERMANENT END TO LRA ATROCITIES.


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 We believe that a worldview bound by borders is outdated and that stopping injustice anywhere is the responsibility of humanity everywhere.

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.
