Unbound helps real people struggling against difficult odds. When you sponsor a child, young adult or elder through Unbound, you invest in individual ideas and initiatives that change lives and help build more resilient communities. Help a strong, capable family working hard to build a better life.
Your sponsorship helps people feed themselves and their communities. Like Merlyn's father, many in the Unbound community are farmers. With the work of their hands, they are able to grow food for the family — even food to sell in their community.
There is nothing more powerful than an educated mind. Help Unbound unlock the potential of people who live in poverty around the world. With the help of their sponsors, Merlyn, her brother and her sister all attend school in Guatemala.
Your sponsorship provides microfinancing for small businesses around the world. Families of sponsored children pool resources and make loans to one another. Merlyn's father works as a day-laborer but supplements his family's income and food supply by growing crops of his own.
Houses in the Unbound world come in all shapes and sizes. Always modest, they give shelter and help families stay safe. Unbound sponsorship means that Merlyn's family can save for critical improvements needed in earthquake-prone Guatemala.
Unbound sponsorship is about individuals and families helping each other. Unbound sponsorship lifts people up — both the sponsor and the sponsored — in ways that are large and small.
