Gain insights into the evolution of WE Villages and its transformative impact on thousands of lives.

Traditional models of international development are broken. Too focused on temporary solutions, they do not overcome the complex causes of poverty with a holistic, permanent solution. Through Free The Children’s WE Villages, we help people build up stable, thriving communities that give them the power and dignity to support themselves. On this exclusive trip, you’ll learn about the beginnings of this award-winning development model and how for two decades, it has focused on empowerment in eight developing countries, providing high quality education to over 200,000 children while helping families break the cycle of poverty at the same time. You’ll connect with leaders in sustainable development who are working with this model on a daily basis and how community-driven development projects ensure true sustainability. This trip also includes more volunteering time than the standard trip—giving you the opportunity to develop meaningful connections with community members and put real faces to the impact of your work, whether it’s building a school or digging a well.
