Free The Children is an international charity and educational partner that empowers people to make a difference in the local and global community. Internationally, we empower communities to lift themselves out of poverty through our holistic, sustainable international development model, Adopt a Village. Domestically, 2.3 million youth across North America and the UK are involved in our WE Schools programming, taking action on the causes they care about and becoming engaged global citizens.
If you would like to speak with a member of our staff or to request b-roll footage and photos, please contact us at
