Founded in 1995 by 12-year-old Canadian child rights activist, Craig Kielburger, the event will be September 29 in Vancouver, British Columbia. The nonprofit organization targets poverty and exploitation of children by empowering youth through leadership opportunities. Free The Children has built more than 500 schools around the world and has reached more than one million young people, says Kielburger.
