So I’m sure that most of you have heard of a campaign run by the NGO Invisible Children called “Kony 2012.” The campaign has lead to a lot of thought, both inspiring people to get involved and drawing criticism from many others. Initially, after watching the video I felt strongly that this campaign was a great way for people our age to truly make a difference. But after doing some research I found that many Ugandans are amongst the harshest critics of this campaign. A man named Alan Kasujja, a prominent radio host in Uganda, put forth the idea on his twitter account that NGO’s (or Non-governmental organizations), such as Invisible Children, are in fact quite similar to pre-colonial missionaries. Seeing as we recently looked at pre-colonial missionaries in India I thought this would be a fitting blog post. I want to make it clear that I am not trying to either support Kony 2012 or attack it, I just want to know what you all think about this comparison and the Ugandans’ reaction in general. Here’s a link to see some more Ugandans’ thoughts. http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/world_now/2012/03/uganda-kony-2012-reaction.html.
