Canadian advocate for children’s rights Craig Kielburger delivered a captivating keynote address after receiving an honorary degree from the University of Toronto at the commencement ceremony for the graduating class of 2011. A University of Toronto grad, Craig Kielburger founded the Free the Children foundation in 1995 when he was 12 years old, and has worked furiously with his brother Marc to turn the foundation into a movement. Free the Children is a youth-funded organization focused on sustainable development in places including Kenya, Ecuador, India, Nicaragua, Arizona-Mexico and China.

In his poignant speech, Craig Kielburger reinforces the beliefs of his powerful organization and encourages the graduates to pursue a deeper level of success and fulfillment by addressing pressing world issues and discusses his interactions with Mother Theresa.
