As an international charity and educational partner, WE Charity, formerly known as Free the Children, believes in a world where all young people are free to achieve their fullest potential as agents of change. We work to empower youth to remove barriers that prevent them from being active local and global citizens. Locally, by providing young people with the tools to learn more about important social justice issues and by helping them to develop the skills they need to make a positive impact in a meaningful way. Globally, by helping children and families to break the cycle of poverty through working with communities towards creating sustainable solutions. Founded in 1995 by international child rights activist Craig Kielburger, WE Charity has a proven track record of success. The organization has received the World’s Children’s Prize for the Rights of the Child (also known as the Children’s Nobel Prize), the Human Rights Award from the World Association of Non-Governmental Organizations, and has formed successful partnerships with leading school boards and Oprah's Angel Network.
