Transforming lives through sustainable impact

WE Charity is an international charity and educational partner. Our organisation is unique in that it operates collaborative programmes, both domestically and internationally. In the UK, U.S. and Canada, WE Day and WE Schools are initiatives of WE Charity that educate and empower young people. WE Schools is a year-long social action programme that nurtures compassion in students and gives them the tools to create transformative social change. And WE Day is a series of inspiring events that celebrate young people making a difference in their local and global communities.

Across Africa, Asia and Latin America, we partner with communities to implement WE Villages, a holistic, five-pillar international development model designed to achieve sustainable change. Together with local leaders and families, we transform lives with solutions that are adaptive, effective and sustained long-term by the community itself.
