Free the Children

1. When we began, our first problem to end child’s exploitation and help children to protect their rights was taken seriously. Many of our members are 8 or 9 years old. The big question was, how can a group like this understand the issue of child labour? So we did our research: we began learning from local organizations and from the children themselves. Now we have young people who are able to stand up (fight against) to debates with heads of companies or world leaders.

2. Unbelievably, young people want to get involved, they want to have a voice. We started with about 12 young people in Toronto, and we now have groups across Canada and the United States, in Australia, Brazil, Chile, Singapore.

3. I remember when adults would come to the school and say, “You’re young people, you’re our hope for the future, our leaders of tomorrow”, and I remember always thinking, “Well, that’s nice, but why can’t we be the leaders of today?” Young people have a lot to offer and they bring a new perspective. Basically, who better understands the rights of children and the situation of children than children themselves?

4. Once, I was reading the local newspaper. And I came across (found by chance) an article about a young Pakistani boy, whose photo was on the front page with the headline BOY, 12 YEARS OLD, SPOKE OUT, MURDERED. And that caught my attention because I was also 12 years old at that time. I read about how at the age of 4 he was sold into slavery. And how at 10 he was finally able to escape and began to speak out (speak freely) for working children in Pakistan and around the world. And how at the age of 12 he was murdered. I began to do more research, until I learned that 250 million children are involved working around the world. I went to my class at school and said, “Listen, here’s an issue. This is what I know about it. This is what I want to do. Who wants to help?” And from there the Free Children was born.

5. When I’m older, I hope to become a doctor. I would like to be a part of Medecins sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders), because MSF believes that when it comes to people, whether they be in Congo or Somalia, they’re not just that country’s problem, they’re the world’s problem. It’s like Free the Children - we don’t believe children are Thailand’s or Brazil’s children; they’re the world’s children, and thus the world’s responsibility.
