invisible children is a movement seeking to end the conflict in uganda and stop the abduction of children for use as child soldiers. Invisible children uses film, creativity, and social action to end the use of child soldiers in Joseph Kony's rebel war and restore Northern Uganda to peace and prosperity.
The SCHOOLS FOR SCHOOLS PROGRAM emerged from Invisible Children Uganda's overarching goal to help rebuild the standards of secondary education in Northern Uganda. The projects under the Umbrella of S4S encourage academic excellence not only within students, but also on a much larger scale within the schools. By delving to the root of local development issues and improving education holistically from the ground up, we are able to help foster long-term change in the quality of education in the region through a variety of implementation practices.
The goal of School for Schools is to creatively raise money for the schools of Northern Uganda. Bishop Lynch is a part of a cluster of schools raising money for Pabbo Secondary School. In the past three years, BL students have raised nearly $30,000 for our sister school. Total funds raised in 2009-2010 from all participating schools was $786,958 with 1,609 schools participating.
