Craig Keilburger has inspired millions to take action and do something about the fate of millions of children around the world. Our class is no different. We learned about Craig in class and some of the things he’s done. Free the Children, the organization he helped start, has helped literally millions of kids to break the cycle of poverty, escape forced labour and many other situations we can’t even imagine. Much of this done through providing children with the opportunity to go to school. Their motto is “children helping children through education” and as Craig’s story shows us, it starts with just one passionate young person.
