Many Central African communities don’t have the communication tools needed to warn each other of danger or regularly collaborate on strategies for improving safety. Invisible Children helps local peacebuilders in isolated areas communicate with one another, share information about threats to safety and intercommunal conflict, and employ locally-developed solutions to prevent violent conflict.
This program began as a project of Congolese priest, Father Benoit Kinelegu, following the devastating Makombo Massacre in 2009. We partnered with Father Benoit in 2010 to help expand his work and continue work alongside his organization, Commission Diocésaine pour Justice et Paix (CDJP) to implement this program today.
