GBS hosts special presentation on group’s mission to restore peace in Africa
A movement to end the use of child soldiers in war-torn central Africa was literally brought center stage for students of Glenbrook South High School on October 7.
Volunteers with non-profit group Invisible Children conducted a special presentation in the auditorium about the organization’s efforts to stop Joseph Kony and his group of rebels known as the Lord’s Resistance Army.
The organization also seeks to improve the quality of life for northern Ugandans through education, health care and employment.
Students watched a video that outlined the very personal history of Invisible Children and listened to two speakers intimately involved with the organization – Peter King, a pastor in northern Uganda, and Sunee Washom, a volunteer.
Both speakers shared with students how they could get involved with Invisible Children and took questions following their presentations.
