Thank you for reading this and doing further research about Invisible Children and Kony 2012. In response to this explosion of interest about the Kony 2012 film, there have been hundreds of thousands of comments in support of the arrest of Joseph Kony and the work of Invisible Children. However, there have also been a few pieces written that are putting out false or mis-leading information about these efforts. This statement is our official response to some of these articles and is a source for accurate information about Invisible Children’s mission, financials and approach to stopping LRA violence.
Invisible Children’s mission is to stop LRA violence and support the war affected communities in Central Africa. These are the three ways we achieve that mission. Each is essential: 1) Document and make the world aware of the LRA. This includes making documentary films and touring these films around the world so that they are seen for free by millions of people. 2) Channeling the energy and awareness from informed viewers of IC films into large scale advocacy campaigns that have mobilized the international community to stop the LRA and protect civilians. 3) Operate programs on the ground in the LRA-affected areas to provide protection, rehabilitation and development assistance.
All of our organizational efforts and resources go to accomplishing those 3 goals. We have always split our energies and resources between international awareness & advocacy and programs on the ground. The allocation of our finances should be judged within that publicly-stated mission…
I really need to learn how to handle someone not liking me. I am sure that someone hasn’t liked me before, they’ve just never been obviouse about it or let me know. I mean I can be an awfully annoying person. But just the thought of someone not liking me makes me want to cry. Does that make me weak?
I think that person inside me that wants to be liked by everyone, is the same person that cares to much and is increibly self conscious.
Oh sweet girl, I can totally and completely relate.<3 I can’t stand it when someone dislikes me, and often times I would go out of my way to make them like me. Now, I still hate the feeling, but I have to realize that some people just love to hate.
