Invisible Children is a non-profit organization that was created by 3 guys from California to rescue children in Africa who are being mutilated and abducted from their homes in the middle of the night and are being forced to become child soldiers, they are as young as 7 and possibly even younger. This group is to raise awareness of what is going on in Northern Uganda and spread the word so that maybe more people will become involved and help to end this war that has been going on for over 21 years.
A former Catholic altar boy from northern Uganda, Joseph Kony has waged war in central Africa for more than two decades.
He claims that his Lord's Resistance Army movement has been fighting to install a government in Uganda based on the Biblical 10 Commandments.
But his rebels now terrorise large swathes of the Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan and the Central African Republic, and he is wanted for war crimes by the International Criminal Court (ICC).
Regional armies are trying to hunt them down with the help of 100 US soldiers.
Mr Kony was due to sign a peace deal with the Ugandan government in 2008, but peace talks fell apart because the LRA leader wanted assurances that he and his allies would not be prosecuted.

Born in the early 1960s in Odek, a village east of Gulu, Mr Kony is remembered as an amiable boy.
"He played football and was a brilliant dancer," one of his former classmates said, recalling the rebel leader's days at Odek primary.
The LRA's aims were heavily influence by the Holy Spirit Movement, a 1980s group that represented the Acholi people of northern Uganda.
The movement was formed by Alice Lakwena, a former prostitute who was believed to be Mr Kony's cousin.
They felt excluded from power after northern leader Milton Obote was overthrown in a military rebellion, and eventually replaced by current President Yoweri Museveni in 1986.
Ms Lakwena promised her followers immunity from the bullets of the Ugandan army, but Mr Museveni's troops defeated her movement in 1988 and she fled to Kenya.
It's time to end this war that has been going on for more than 21 years!
