SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITY – Captivating Kaili needs 73 family sponsors

This six year project will end poverty for 450 families.  It starts with us engaging 150 family sponsors willing to give US$40 a month / $480 a year for the life of this project.  AS OF TODAY we have 77 sponsors committed to this project.  These sponsors become our official PARTNERS of this project and we hope will journey with us through the next 6 years of this work and be part of the impact it brings to families and their children.  In effect, $480 a year support means that every two years, another family gets their chance to progress thanks to this project and the support of a sponsor.  We’d love you to join our sponsorship family and bring permanent hope to people and their children who need us to do our part.  Will you join us?  To support this project and sponsor a family, email andrewc@captivating.org or simply go to the donate section of our website, select Village Development, and make a donation.  We will then contact you with details.
