Founded in 1995 by international activist Craig Kielburger, Free The Children believes in a world where all young people are free to achieve their fullest potential as agents of change, and empowers youth to remove barriers that prevent them from being active local and global citizens. The organization's domestic programs-which include We Day (www.weday.com), Free The Children's signature youth empowerment event, and We Act-educate, engage and empower hundreds of thousands of youth in North America, the UK and around the world to become engaged global citizens. Its international projects have brought more than 650 schools and school rooms to youth and provided clean water and sanitation, health care and food security to one million people around the world, freeing children and their families from the cycle of poverty.
