Attending the Pan African Conference

Pan African Conference

Unbound staff from program offices around Africa came together to share ideas and challenges at this year’s Pan African Conference in Uganda.

By Regina Mburu, communications liaison for Unbound in Africa

Each Unbound program office has their own unique way of doing things, tailored to meet the needs of the sponsored friends in their area. But learning from other offices is invaluable to keeping the program evolving.

Every few years, our program offices in Africa hold a Pan African Conference where they can share ideas and challenges. This year the conference was hosted by our Uganda office. Regina Mburu, our communications liaison in Africa, shares her experiences during the conference.

Meet Neha, Mateo and Daphine: Three kids who need sponsors

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.
