WE Charity is an international charity and educational partner. Our organization is unique in that it operates collaborative programs both domestically and internationally.
In the US, Canada, and the UK, WE Day and WE Schools are initiatives of WE Charity that educate and empower young people. WE Schools is a yearlong educational program that nurtures compassion in students and gives them the tools to create transformative social change. And WE Day is a series of stadium-sized events that celebrate youth making a difference in their local and global communities.

Together with local leaders and families, we transform lives with solutions that are adaptive, effective and sustained long term by the community itself.
