Erin Stillion, financial auditor for Unbound in Kansas, recently traveled to Kenya to perform a financial audit for Unbound’s Nairobi project. While he was there he met an amazing young man that made a huge impact on his life. This is Erin’s story.
The sun was already beating down on a sea of rusted tin roofs. Our team was wrapping up a financial audit in Unbound’s Nairobi project, spending several days poring over documents, reading policy manuals, interviewing staff, assessing procedures and visiting families. I was exhausted, but brimming with anticipation.

“I have been in Kenya thrice,” said Toni Guidice, who is from New York and sponsors three children through Unbound. “Seeing my sponsored children brings warmth to my heart. Each time I see them my heart melts.
“I feel nothing but love when I look into their eyes.”
