North Central welcomes Jimmy Ocaya from the Invisible Children program and Face-to-Face tour to speak about his experiences in a rebel army in Uganda. The free talk starts at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 18, in Madden Theatre. Invisible Children has expanded its programs. Recognized worldwide for its documentary film exposing the horrifying use of child soldiers in war-torn northern Uganda, Invisible Children (IC) now has many projects and programs working to rebuild schools, educate future leaders and provide jobs. A Q&A session will follow.
The Face-to-Face Tour brings the top Ugandan students from the Legacy Scholarship Program on 11 different tours across North America with IC Roadie teams. They are sharing how Invisible Children’s programs are rebuilding education for a region recovering from more than 20 years of war. These students have overcome all odds. They are night commuters, child mothers, displaced persons, orphans by war.
Various campus groups and offices are hosting this event.
