So far this year, Invisible Children’s supporters have 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.

Giving Tuesday tough journeys
In October, our team braved treacherous road conditions to reach a remote community in the Central Africa Republic.

Here are just a few of the victories that Invisible Children supporters have made possible so far this year:

+ 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 been exposed to 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. 

+ 50 people reunited with their families after escaping captivity in the Lord’s Resistance Army. 

This #GivingTuesday, join us to accomplish another huge milestone before the end of the year: breaking an annual record for reuniting Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) returnees with their families.

Giving Tuesday Reunions

With your support on #GivingTuesday, we can partner with local community leaders to bring 76 escapees home in time for the holidays. 

We know that a brighter future is possible when we work together to create it. Thank you for supporting the resilient hope of every person who bravely escapes captivity, and every person who is safely welcomed home. 

This #Giving Tuesday, join us in creating the future we believe in.
