Free the Children (http://www.freethechildren.com/
) was founded by my hero Craig Kielburger (http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=10150131340630083&topic=1...
) in 1995 at the age of 12. At that point he gathered 11 school friends to start fighting children labor.
Now Free the Children has build more than 500 schools all over the world to help children get educated and out of the poverty cicle. 179 thousand people have been provided access to clean drinking water. 23.5 thousand women have been equipped to become economically
self-sufficient.All these with the work of hundreds of thousands of young people.
