Studio Ideas and Inspiration

Always wanted to participate in this organization

Free The Children was founded by 12-year-old Craig Kielburger in 1995 when he gathered 11 school friends to begin fighting child labour. Today, Free The Children is the world’s largest network of children helping children through education, with more than one million young people involved in our programs in 45 countries.

A morning to remember

As 12-year-old Craig flipped through the Toronto Star in search for comics, he was struck by a story. A raw, but courageous story of a boy his age named Iqbal. Iqbal Masih was born in South Asia and sold into slavery at the age of four. In his short life, he had spent six years chained to a carpet-weaving loom. Iqbal captured the world’s attention by speaking out for children’s rights.

    Nilakshi!
    I am part of this organization and it’s awesome! In fact, I’ll hopefully be going to Kenya with them next summer… It’s really easy if you want to participate too. The simplest way is to sign up with them for their newsletter online, and get involved whenever an activity they’re doing interests you.
    Go for it!! :-)
