Hi, my name is Giulia and I am a Canadian student. I have been involved in a number of fund raising projects over the last 2 years.
My current goal is to raise $10,000 to build a school in Kenya through the "WE Movement" (formerly known as "Free The Children".)
I started this project in September 2016 and I hope to be able to raise the money by Summer 2019.
(UPDATE: We made our $10,000 goal BEFORE our DEADLINE!!!!)
The “WE Movement” was started in 1995 by Craig Kielburger and his brother Mark. Craig was only twelve years old when he started this organization. Their main goal is to free children and families from poverty and child labour through their “We Villages” program.
The "WE Movement" is active in more than 45 countries and they have built over 650 schools. Around 200,000 children attend these schools every day. Approximately one million people have received access to clean water, sanitation and health care. The work of this organization has improved the lives of many families around the world!
