Building 7 Schools in 7 Countries
The goal is to have thousands of people register for the LYM to help raise funds to build 7 schools in 7 countries in partnership with Free The Children.
Free The Children is a charity and educational partner that empowers youth to remove barriers that prevent them from being active local and global citizens. Their domestic programs educate, engage and empower hundreds of thous
ands of youth in North America and the UK. Our international projects, led by our holistic and sustainable Adopt a Village model, has brought over 650 schools and school rooms to youth and provided clean water, health care and sanitation to one million people around the world, freeing children and their families from the cycle of poverty.
Free The Children was founded by 12-year-old Craig Kielburger in 1995 when he gathered 11 school friends to begin fighting child labour. Today, Free The Children is the world's largest network of children helping children through education, with more than one million young people involved in our programs in 45 countries.
