WE Charity is unique among Canadian charities in that it operates collaborative programs both domestically—through WE Day and WE Schools— and internationally, through our WE Villages international development model.
Our programs would not be possible without the dedicated support, time and collaboration of incredible program partners, school districts and many other supporters. WE Charity is deeply grateful for their help in empowering young people to create better communities and a better world.
