Climbing Cranes is a short film documentary created by a small group of young people who grew up in Canada’s child welfare system including Children's Aid Society. The film was created for the five14 Talks, a TED style conference on Children and Youth in Care Day. This video dramatically opened the 2015 five14 Talks and launching an important public conversation around the tremendous adversity young people in care battle to lead meaningful lives. Ultimately the video will also serve as a legacy to David Rutherford, a former youth in care who passed away on December 2014.
five14 Talks is a forum much like TED Talks, where Canada and the world's leading thinkers in Child Welfare are invited to give a talk in 14 minutes (or less individually). Look for the individual talks on this channel as well as the 2015 event highlights.
Kids in need of protection shouldn’t be defined by disadvantage, and they certainly don’t deserve to be constrained by it. The Children’s Aid Foundation exists to help vulnerable kids live up to their potential. They depend on us. We depend on you. Your donation makes all the difference.
