In high school, I joined our chapter of Free The Children, now called WE Charity, and it changed my entire perception of what a person is capable of, of what is possible. Founder of WE, Craig Kielburger, was only 12 years old when he created the non-profit, proving that no matter who you are, where you come from, what you make, we all have the power to make a difference. We can make the world a better place. We can create opportunities for each other. We can save the future generations. It is possible.
After helping to build a clean water system in Ecuador and a school in Haiti, I decided to team up with WE once again to build a school in India because there are still almost 60 million primary school-aged children around the world who are not in school and that disproportionately affects girls age 6-11. We Are India emphasizes girl's education in rural regions of India where girls are more likely to drop out of school to take care of their family. Education should be a right, globally. It teaches us opportunity, diligence and possibility. Help change the world we live in.
