Global Activism: Farther Foundation helps high schoolers travel overseas
Last year, as part of our Global Activism series, we met Chicagoan David Weindling. He left a career in private business to dedicate himself full-time to socioeconomically deprived kids in the Chicago area. He founded the Farther Foundation to provide scholarships so high schoolers can travel the world to do service projects and experience different cultures. David’s back to update us on what his group is doing these days.
