Students Become Aware of "Invisible Children"

Salesianum students talk with presenters from the Invisible Children program.Salesianum held an A.M. assembly on Monday, as students, faculty and staff learned of the war and suffering in central Africa through a special program, called “Invisible Children.”

 

According to their official website, Invisible Children uses film, creativity and social action to end the use of child soldiers in Joseph Kony’s rebel war and restore LRA-affected communities in central Africa to peace and prosperity.

 

The organization’s goal, the movie said, is to have Kony come to justice by the end of 2012. The goal can be accomplished with social promotion against the continued crimes committed by Kony.

 

After the film, Salesianum students met Bodi, a 21-year-old native of Uganda who was rescued from Kony’s army of children soldiers.  Students also learned more about how to get involved, and information was shared after the presentation and during lunches in the Dining Center.
