In the spring of 2003, three young filmmakers traveled to Africa in search of a story. What started out as a filmmaking adventure transformed into much more when these boys from Southern California discovered a tragedy that disgusted and inspired them, a tragedy where children are both the weapons and the victims.
After returning to the States, they created the documentary "Invisible Children: Rough Cut," a film that exposes the tragic realities of northern Uganda.s night commuters and child soldiers.
The film was originally shown to friends and family, but has now been seen by millions of people. The overwhelming response has been, "How can I help?" To answer this question, the non-profit Invisible Children, Inc. was created, giving compassionate individuals an effective way to respond to the situation.
Who We Are
We are storytellers. We are visionaries, humanitarians, artists, and entrepreneurs. We are individuals part of a generation eager for change and willing to pursue it.
As a non-profit we work to transform apathy into activism. By documenting the lives of those living in regions of conflict and injustice, we hope to educate and inspire individuals in the Western world to use their unique voice for change. Our media creates an opportunity for people to become part of a grassroots movement that intelligently responds to what.s happening in the world.
But our work extends beyond our borders. In war-affected regions we focus on long-term development, working directly with individuals and institutions that are eager to realize their full potential. Through education and innovative economic opportunities, we partner with affected communities and strive to improve the quality of life for individuals living in conflict and post-conflict regions.
How We Make a Difference
Our approach to humanitarian work is founded in the strength and intelligence of the Ugandan community. We learned early on it was not only important but essential to heed the wisdom of people that had not only lived in the war, but were surviving it. People who would know better than anyone what the greatest needs were and the best ways to meet them. What we came to find is that while there have been many efforts to address the issues that stem from living and fighting in such a long-lasting war, the people of Uganda are asking for a future beyond the conflict.
Their pleas have become our development strategy.
All of our programming is a partnership between those of us at Invisible Children and those in the Ugandan community. We focus on long-term goals that enable children to take responsibility for their future and the future of their country. Our programs are carefully researched and developed initiatives that address the need for quality education, mentorships, the redevelopment of schools, resettlement from the camps, and financial stability.
The Black Hare Renaissance FaireThe Black Hare Renaissance Faire is a first year faire located in Jackson County, West Virginia. It is being sponsored by Carbon 12, a local 4-H group dedicated to promoting theatrical arts. The masterminds behind the fair are a group of like-minded individuals that include Carbon12 , faculty and students of West Virginia University at Parkersburg, staff from local public schools, and regional branches of the Society for Creative Anachronism. The scholars associated with this project will be drawn from the aforementioned groups, as well as incorporating expert craftsman and artisans. This is our second year for the faire. Our events will span one day again this year but interest is growing. However this one day will have a continuous stream of activity. We plan to have multiple events going on simultaneously in order for our attendees to have various options in what they wish to experience. We have finalized several events in the categories of live entertainment, combat, food, artisans, historical reenactments, and children’s activities.
Offerings at the FaireHeavy Weapons, Archery, Thrown Weapons, Period Food, Living Chess Match, Children’s Area and Activities, fire breathing, juggling and much more. (A complete list and schedule will soon follow as the event draws near).
