Free The Children has two founding missions. Inspired by the life and death of the young child slave Iqbal Masih, we work internationally to free children from poverty, exploitation and all forms of abuse. The second part of our mission is closer to home. When 12-year-old Craig Kielburger started to follow in the activist footsteps of Iqbal, he created an organization to empower a movement of children helping children, and youth helping youth.
Free The Children's We Day is more than just one day of celebration and inspiration. We Day is the movement of our time - a movement of young people leading local and global change. Harnessing the energy and passion of a young community of changemakers, We Day brings youth together in an unparalleled setting to show them that they are not alone in their journey to make a difference.
