As a Canadian company, it was important for us to support a Canadian non-profit and give a portion of our earnings to an organization with an international scope. WE Charity is an international charity and educational partner. Their organization is unique in that it operates collaborative programs both domestically and internationally. In the US, Canada, and the UK, WE Day and WE Schools are initiatives of WE Charity that educate and empower young people. WE Schools is a year-long service-learning program that nurtures compassion in students and gives them the tools to create transformative social change. And WE Day is a series of inspiring events that celebrate youth making a difference in their local and global communities.
In Africa, Asia and Latin America, we partner with communities to implement WE Villages, a holistic, five-pillar international development model designed to achieve sustainable change. Together with local leaders and families, we transform lives with solutions that are adaptive, effective and sustained long term by the community itself.
As an organization, they have empowered 1 million people to lift themselves out of poverty, 200,000 children now have access to education, and 27.6 million hours have been logged of volunteer service through WE Schools.
