raise awareness of the invisible children and the current situation in Uganda
There is a unique situation in UGANDA that must be addressed. Children are being abducted and trained by a rebel army and thought to fight and kill. CHildren are living in fear and this is not right. For more info go to invisiblechildren.com
An entire generation has never known peace. Tens of thousands of civilians have been mutilated or killed by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) in Northern Uganda for 20 years. Since 1986, the leader of the LRA, Joseph Kony, has abducted and brainwashed more than 20,000 boys and girls to fight as child soldiers in his militia, with roughly 12,000 abductions occurring since 2002. As a result, 250,000 children in all of Northern Uganda currently receive no education; 737 schools (60% of the total) are non-functioning because of the war, leaving the schools that are functioning grossly overcrowded, with 300 students for every one teacher.
1. This is WRONG
2. Something must be done
3. People must be educated in order to make a difference.
