Invisible Children Club at UNT
The Invisible Children Club is a university chapter of the non-profit Invisible Children, a movement aimed at ending Africa's longest-running war, freeing the child soldiers forced to fight it, and rebuilding what over two decades of war has destroyed in Northern Uganda. Invisible Children is a social, political and global movement using the transformative power of story to change lives. By inspiring youth culture to value creativity, idealism and sacrifice, the movement fuels the most effective, adaptable and innovative programs in the world. The Schools for Schools (S4S) 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. Schools for Schools is a competition is which our club would compete against other universities and high schools to raise money for our partner school in Uganda.
