Free The Children

Free The Children

Free The Children is the world's largest network of children helping children through education, with more than one million youth involved in our innovative education and development programs in 45 countries. Founded in 1995 by international child rights activist Craig Kielburger, Free The Children 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.

Free the Children - Donate now! The primary goals of the organization are to free children from poverty and exploitation and free young people from the notion that they are powerless to affect positive change in the world. Through domestic empowerment programs and leadership training, Free The Children inspires young people to develop as socially conscious global citizens and become agents of change for their peers around the world.

Free The Children has built more than 500 schools around the world and has reached more than one million young people through outreach in North America.

Free The Children is a children's charity registered in Canada, the United States, Japan, China, Mexico, Kenya, Sri Lanka and other countries around the world.

International Development

Adopt a Village is Free The Children’s unique holistic development program that supports four aspects of community development. Through this multi-faceted approach, children and their families are truly empowered to break out of poverty.

Education: Schoolbuilding and educational programming provide communities with outfitted schools and the programming support needed for quality education.

Healthcare: From mobile health clinics to lunch programs, these initiatives prevent disease and improve community health.

Alternative Income: Micro-credit loans, skills training and small business capital empower women to better support their families.

Water and Sanitation: Access to clean water improves health and reduces the burden of chores placed on girls, so that they can go to school and receive an education
