For ME to WE (at the time Free the Children), South Asia is where it all began.
In 1995, WE co-founder Craig Kielburger journeyed to South Asia at the age of 12 where he witnessed child labour first hand. This is the trip that changed his life and started what we now know as the WE movement.
Our work in India has continued for the last 20 years to include all of our 5 pillars of impact: Education, Water, Health and Opportunity and Food. You will work on one of our many projects in Rajasthan province that bring food and water security to underdeveloped parts of the country, and help children, particular girls to have a brighter future through education and opportunity. You will also get to learn about this beautiful culture, it's rich flavours and warm people.
