s quoted from their website:
“An international charity and educational partner, 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.
Our domestic and international programming work together to achieve this.
In Canada, the US, and the UK, the organization provides comprehensive programs for service learning and active citizenship.
- We educate, engage and empower youth in North America, the UK and around the world with the tools, knowledge, confidence and support network to be ambassadors for change and lead meaningful action.
In Africa, Asia and Latin America, the organization provides a comprehensive child-focused development approach inspired by the African proverb “It takes a village to raise a child”.
- We work together with communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America to establish a comprehensive, child-focused development approach that gives all community members the education, skills and opportunity to lift themselves out of poverty—forever.”
