In 2021, Invisible Children’s supporters helped thousands of people in some of the hardest-to-reach corners of central Africa build the brighter futures they hope for. Our toughest journeys are possible thanks to the generosity of people around the world who believe that a future where all communities live free from violence is possible.
Here are just a few of the victories that Invisible Children supporters made possible in 2021:
+ 39% fewer attacks and 68% fewer abductions by armed groups in the regions where Invisible Children community protection programs operate.
+ 165 Local Peace Communities trained and supported to prevent violent conflict and reduce exposure to armed groups.
+ One-on-one trauma counseling for 1,930 people who have experienced violent conflict. 56% of counseling beneficiaries have already been discharged, showing signs of improved mental health.
+ 120 mediators trained to lead conflict resolution processes and help prevent violence in their communities.
+ 92 people reunited with their families after escaping captivity in the Lord’s Resistance Army and other armed groups.
