Sponsoring elders gives us wisdom and perspective

Over the past weeks we’ve heard phenomenal stories of Unbound sponsored elders and their wisdom, joy and love.

We learned about Cristina in Guatemala, who returned to school at age 59, and Julia in Bolivia, who embodies love in how she cares for her husband. Eusebio in Guatemala shared his wisdom about embracing life, while Eustaquia in Mexico provided a lesson in ingenuity and care for the earth. Finally, Maria in Guatemala described the hardships of her life and how she has overcome them through faith.

Through their stories we learn about the importance of sponsorship for elders, the stability and encouragement it brings to their lives, and why it’s an important aspect of Unbound’s commitment to honoring the dignity and wisdom of all people.

You can learn more about our work with elders in the upcoming edition of our Spring Impact publication, which will hit sponsors’ mailboxes in the next few weeks. (Didn’t get one or not a sponsor? Request a free copy by emailing us.)

We invite you to consider sponsoring an elder and beginning a relationship that will change your perspective on life for the better.
