We Day Events:
Throughout the year, you will participate in several We Day events along with thousands of other socially conscious school kids from three different countries.
Messages of We Day:
The most important message We Day and Free The Children spread is the message that individual people, like yourselves, can make a difference in the world. Another important message is that of action. When we know of social issues in the world we need to act, and stop the spread of apathy that plagues our society.
