Over 11,000 people from all over the world have taken part in campaigns to make access to education an opportunity for all children.
Bring together 33 friends to give $3.33 a day (the cost of a coffee) for 3 months. All those 3's add up to $10,000 and lead to the construction of a schoolhouse that will stand for 20 years and educate 1,000 kids!
This schoolhouse will not only provide children with a space to learn, but will arm them with the courage and self-confidence to better themselves, their families, their communities, and ultimately the next generation.
You set up your awesome campaign page and share it with your friends and family, letting them know why making education accessible for all is important to you.
Word about your campaign spreads. Soon, you and 33 of your friends and family have come together to donate $3.33/day for 3 months, and have raised a total of $10,000.
That $10,000 leads to the construction of a Free The Children schoolhouse in a developing community, providing a safe and welcoming space for approximately 1,000 kids over 20 years to receive an education.
We believe that you have the power to change the world - and with the access to technology that we have today, this has never been easier. We want to give YOU the tools needed to rally a community around creating positive impact!
Your friends and family will see your video explaining why you are campaigning to fund a schoolhouse on a personalized Campaign Page just like this one! From here, they will also be able to learn more about Change Heroes, Free The Children, and the Adopt A Village development model.

Free The Children is an international charity and educational partner founded in 1995 by human rights advocates Craig Kielburger and Marc Kielburger. Together, with local leaders and families, Free The Children transforms lives with solutions that are adaptive, effective, and sustained long term by the community itself.
In Africa, Asia, and Latin America, they partner with communities to implement Adopt a Village - a holistic, five-pillar international development model designed to achieve sustainable change. The education pillar goes beyond school-building. They provide teacher training, extracurricular programs, books, and basic school supplies so that children can focus on their studies without worrying about absent teachers or a lack of learning materials.
"The change starts within each one of us. And ends only when all children are free to be children."
