Craig Kielburger

Craig Kielburger became an advocate for children's rights when he was twelve years old and read about the murder of a Pakistani child who had been sold into bondage. His organization Free the Children has since expanded into twenty countries, where it initiates such projects as opening schools and rehabilitation centers, and providing alternative income programs for families to relieve children from hazardous work. In the past four years, Kielburger has traveled to more than thirty countries visiting and working with street children and speaking to groups on children's rights. The recipient of many awards, he is the author of Free the Children.
