Erin Blanding would like to make the world a better place and, through her volunteer activities and those of others, she is already making a difference.
Only in her fourth year Erin has already travelled to Kenya to help teachers in the area teach English to 300 children, and to help build a school.When she was in high school, she travelled to Toronto as one of two delegates from the Atlantic region to encourage other youth to take on a helping role in the world.And she has formed a group on campus to so the same.
Erin is a member of Free the Children - the largest network of children helping children, through education, anywhere in the world.There are more than 1,000,000 youth involved in education and sustainable development projects with Free the Children in 35 countries.And, while Erin is just one of them, it doesn't take more than a few moments in her presence to see that she is absolutely passionate about the cause.
...
Erin stipulates, "We try to take action and raise awareness and help children here learn how they can help children who don't know what it is like to be free.We want to empower them to bring about positive change, to have a voice, and to break free from some of the oppressive situations that exist, from child labour to living in poverty."The group has made tangible inroads already.They have built 400 schools in 35 countries.They have raised money for clean water and sanitation.And they have funded salaries for teachers.They have "adopted" villages through the Adopt-A-Village campaign and, says Erin, "the most important thing is that we have helped people in these villages to be self sustaining."
Erin will continue her work with Free the Children after graduation as well, leading overseas trips, using the Toronto office as a home base.But she won't be alone.Fellow Allisonian Ashley Hilkewich, currently on exchange in Ecuador, will be accompanying Erin to Ontario.
