My 11-year-old daughter, Anna, and I traveled to Honduras with an Unbound Awareness Trip to meet our sponsored child, Jaeli, and her mother, Lorenza. It was wonderful to meet the little girl whom we had come to know through letters for the past two years. We knew a few things about her family and her life, but we were completely unprepared to learn what a huge difference our sponsorship makes in their daily lives.

The best moments in my journey with Unbound have been those spent with the families in their homes, talking and interacting.
I see a sparkle shining brightly in the eyes of the children I have had the pleasure to meet and talk to as they share with me their dreams and hopes for the future.
“When I grow up, I would like to board an airplane and go to America and become as famous as Lupita Nyongo,” said Cecilia, a little girl I met on one of my field visits.
It is through the eyes of children like Cecilia that I find my own strength.
As the travelers from Unbound’s first blogger trip to El Salvador settle back home, they are already starting to share their experiences on their own blogs. We’re excited to share excerpts from what they’ve posted so far.
Graduation season is here, and we couldn’t be more proud of all of those who are achieving their dreams of education. Whether it’s finishing high school or completing a higher education, all of these grads have a lot to celebrate.
Help students like these achieve their dreams. Sponsor today!
When you sponsor through Unbound, you give voice to someone’s dreams.
Watch the dreams of four youth come alive in our new video, “Give Voice to a Dream,” and share it on social media.

In the summer of 2013, I had the chance to travel to Peru. I was constantly amazed by the sponsored friends and families we met. Here is one of their stories.
It caught my eye first thing. A big pink dresser.

Visiting sponsored members’ homes is one of the highlights of an Unbound Awareness Trip. On a recent trip to Nicaragua, sponsors were treated to a special musical performance at one home.
