Free The Children making an impact in rural India

Feb 01, 2011 — Allan Pulga

iQmetrix received a video update today from Free The Children Co-Founder, Marc Kielburger*, filmed directly in India. Free The Children is a Canadian non-profit group -- founded in 1995 by Marc's younger brother, Craig (who was 12 at the time) -- that enables children in North America to take action to improve the lives of fellow children overseas.

iQmetrix is honored to be associated with the work of Free The Children. In the video, Marc thanks iQmetrix for its contributions in sponsoring Kamoda, a rural village in India, as part of Free The Children's Adopt a Village program. Kamoda is located in the Udaipur district of Rajasthan, in Northwest India. Later in the video, Shobha Sharma, South Asia Project Coordinator for Free The Children, shows some of the positive changes resulting from the Adopt a Village program, in Indian communities like Kamoda.

“We are so appreciative of your contributions in 2010,” wrote Amy Bilodeau, Program Manager, Development and Partner Relations for Free The Children, in the message accompanying the video. “The impact your donation is going to have in the coming months in Kamoda, India, is going to be very great.“

*Marc Kielburger was also a keynote speaker at the 2010 iQmetrix Wireless Summit.
