  • Before leaving on a trip to Asia, to investifate situational poverty & child labour, Free the Children petitioned for the release of activist Kailash Satyarthi. This was the first of many social movements. Our organization started to gain traction after I met with Jean Chrétien in India to advocate for a Canadian public stance against child-labour. This made headlines across Canada, and in 2016, Free the Children became known as WE Charity
  • Here at We Charity, we recognize that child labour & poverty is a result of certain societal factors, so we focus our efforts on 5 main areas: education, clean water and sanitation, health care, food security, and alternative income
  • To fight these we have been building schools, wells and health clinics in developing nations. We also run workshops for those in need, and fund sustainability projects such as solar paneling and emission-free farms. On top of these, we fund awareness days run by Me to We, our for-profit sister organization.
  • Over the course of my life, I have searched for ways to eliminate social injustices such as child-labour. I have used my peers to assist me with this journey, and shown how people of a small, voiceless, marginalized group such as children can create organizations that take measures against barriers such as poverty, corruption, educational injustices and more. The work of WE Charity, as well as the awareness raised by Me to We has allowed us to fund hundreds of projects internationally that will continue to break down the barrier of poverty that makes so many live in hardship. At this point, WE Charity is operating and assisting in 9 countries worldwide, showing how regardless of culture, groups of like minded people helping can make a difference. As my journey has taught me, it isn't impossible to break down barriers - it just takes a child to do it.
