Queen’s WE is a Queen’s University campus club dedicated to freeing children around the world from the bounds of poverty and exploitation. Our mission is to awaken the spirit of leadership in youth, and in doing so allow them to realize their ability to drive positive social change and create a more just and equitable world.
Queen’s WE is divided among two on-campus groups: Executive Team and Action Group. In the eight years since our founding, together, the Executive and Action Group, have been working towards our development projects in Kenya, with the ultimate goal of building a school in our sister community. In 2013-2014 we managed to raise over $14,000 for our year-end donation and were able to finish school construction, thus achieving the founding goals of Queen’s WE. In recognition of our record-breaking donation, as a club and as a WE University Chapter, we received the ‘Big Dreamer’s Award’ from WE, in the value of an additional $5,000 to supplement our original donation. We continually look to increase our monetary donations and exceed previous accomplishments!
