At Unbound, sponsorship helps children go to school, have healthy diets and improves the living situation for the entire family.
But it’s more than just tangible goods.
Sponsorship also creates a one-to-one connection between the sponsor and the sponsored friend. They get to know one another through notes and photos, and the sponsor gets to see how sponsorship impacts the sponsored friend’s life.
Neha, Mateo and Daphine are all waiting to start that connection.
Help us find sponsors for these three kids. Share this post on social media and let’s get them sponsored.
