There is a website charitynavigator.org that rates and evaluates charities. Invisible Children spend 80.5% on program expenses i.e doing what its supposed to do. I think this is a great website to find out where your money is going.
The Ugandan military work with both the UN and the African Union and while I am aware of incidences of Ugandan soldiers being accused and convicted of rape, both the UN and the African Union would not work with a government organisation who used rape as a 'weapon of war'. Are you sure its the actual Ugandan Military?

Program expenses can mean a lot. It can include all administration expenses, which don't necessarily help the people a charity claims to help.

Thats awful that both the African Union and the UN would work in peacekeeping with a military that currently uses rape as a 'weapon of war'. I will have to try and find some information on it. Do you know where I could find it?

Charity.org define program expenses as 'This measure reflects what percent of its total budget a charity spends on the programs and services it exists to deliver. Dividing a charity's program expenses by its total functional expenses yields this percentage.' Its quite an in depth website, a lot to go through though.

There are a couple of links in both of these to bigger papers which are too big for me to download right now, but they will probably make for very interesting reading.
This site is really good too
