Torys is pleased to have received a personal video message of thanks from Marc Kielburger, chief executive director of Free The Children. The video features Marc and Canadian rock group Hedley, who visited Kenya, where they helped to build a school and entertain local children.
Founded by Canadian child rights activist Craig Kielburger, Free The Children is the world's largest network of children helping children to develop as socially conscious global citizens, and to become agents of change through domestic empowerment programs and leadership training.
Torys has supported the goals of Free the Children since its incorporation more than 10 years ago. We assisted on the incorporation of the charity and have provided other pro bono legal advice to both Free The Children and its sister organization Me to We in a range of areas. Like Marc and Hedley, Torys encourages young people to become involved in their communities and to help raise awareness of living conditions of children and young people around the world.
