When you ask someone “When you think of sports, what comes to mind?” Many would say, “I love to play, it’s fun, or I love to watch it.” As all of that is quite true, there is so much more to it. To me, sports are about family, community, unity, hope, and opportunity. By joining sports, children instantly have this sense of belonging, this sense of purpose, and a vision for a better future. It gave me that! Sport is so powerful beyond the field of play. It has the power to be a bridge to all people across the globe, and I’ve realized it truly has the power to transform lives.
After being appointed an ambassador for World Concern at the end of last year, I was able to share my beliefs about sports, that sports are at the service of humanity and can literally transform lives in the process. World Concern already had an arsenal of humanitarian programs to help the most poverty-stricken people on the planet, giving them hope and opportunity, and transforming lives. Our missions were aligned, and it has led us all to Kenya! - Sarah Sponcil
