Invisible Children collects data and analyzes trends in intercommunal violence in isolated areas of central Africa via our Crisis Tracker database and conflict mapping tool. We provide in-depth, up-to-date analysis on these trends to humanitarians, conservation experts, local peacebuilding partners, and others working in the region. Equipped with reliable data, information, and expert analysis, they are able to make better decisions for preventing violence and providing communities with vital services.

Self Reporting from Communities

We collect data on intercommunal violence from a variety of sources, primarily local partners and affected communities themselves. This allows for more timely and accurate data collection in isolated areas. It also ensures that affected communities themselves are empowered to tell their own stories, identify sources of violent conflict, and develop solutions.

Missing Persons Database and Returnee Reunification

Invisible Children maintains one of the only databases of missing persons in this region who have been abducted by armed groups and have not returned from captivity. This is an important tool for understanding the impact of armed groups on local communities. This database also supports our work to reunite former child soldiers and other armed group escapees with their families.


Invisible Children’s conflict mapping and analysis covers the border region between eastern Central African Republic (CAR), northeastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and South Sudan.
