Foundations, corporations and adults often choose to support Free The Children’s work at home. School speaking tours on various social issues, leadership programs for at-risk youth and educational curriculum for schools are just part of what we do to engage youth to create social change.

International Support

Many stakeholders generously support our international work, helping to break the cycle of poverty by supporting our holistic development model, Adopt a Village, in the areas of education, clean water and sanitation, health, alternative income, and food security and agriculture.
