How to Know About The Social Entrepreneur Craig Kielburger
As a young man, Craig Kielburger was inspired by his parents’ story and decided to start his own non-profit organization. This was Free The Children, an initiative that helped more than one million children and young people get out of poverty. His speeches and petitions gained the attention of millions of people and eventually led to donations of up to $150,000! His parents, Fred and Theresa, were also instrumental in funding the mission, and they supported it by funding his first research trip to Southern Asia.
His parents were teachers who encouraged him to become a social entrepreneur. His father, Fred, was a real estate investor and he and his mother, Theresa, supported Craig’s idea of creating an organization to help the world’s poorest people. As a child, Craig Kielburger learned about child labor and its negative impacts on children. His passion for helping children spurred his passion for social entrepreneurship, and he later founded ME to WE as a non-profit organization to help the world’s underprivileged youth.
