WE Charity

WE Charity

Crunchbase | Website | Twitter | Facebook | Linkedin

WE Charity was founded by Craig and Marc Kielburger on the belief that the only engine for sustainable change is to use a multifaceted, realistic approach to empower individuals and families to help themselves. To accomplish these goals, the organization operates WE Schools and WE Day in Canada, the United States and the UK as well as WE Villages around the world..

History The WE Charity concept was hatched when the 12-year-old Craig Kielburger read a story about another 12-year-old, Iqbal Masih, who was murdered on account of his outspoken protest of child slave labor in Pakistani carpet mills. Realizing that someone of any age had the power to be an agent for change, Kielburger was inspired by Masih’s story, which sparked his passion for saving children from slavery and exploitation.

Kielburger convinced some of his seventh-grade classmates to join him in his quest to end child labor and established Free the Children, which would later become WE Charity. Craig and his brother soon discovered, though, that there were many barriers to self-actualization and personal empowerment other than slave labor.

Children still needed to work to support their families even after being freed from slave mills. It was clear that there were more fundamental issues at play and that a more comprehensive approach was necessary.

The Five Pillars of Impact The brothers thus created WE Villages to enable entire communities to emerge from poverty. WE Villages has what it calls five Pillars of Impact, education, : health care, food security, clean water and sanitation, and alternative income.

WE Charity’s collaborative and holistic approach to assisting communities has created legacies of long-term success. By carefully addressing each one of the five pillars, WE Charity is successfully rewriting the destinies of many impoverished communities around the world.
