Adopt a Village*
Education is the first step to helping children break free from the cycle of poverty. But hope for a better future comes with holistic solutions. That’s why we empower their mothers, improve their schools, outfit their health clinics and build clean water facilities, with an understanding that everyone and everything, in some way, is joined together.
Local Youth Programming*
Today’s young people are the generation of shameless idealists our world has been waiting for. That’s where the inspiration starts—right here at home. With your support, our programs help to awaken the spirit of leadership in young people and teach life-lasting skills. By raising funds and awareness for overseas development, young people are on the forefront of social change; a generation of passionate global citizens with an unstoppable drive to create stronger communities at home and abroad.

In cases where donations exceed what is needed or local conditions prevent program implementation, Free The Children will redirect funds to similar activities to help people in need. If additional funding is required because of specific project requirements or challenging local conditions, Free The Children may provide additional funding to complete the project to meet our commitment to our beneficiaries.
