Sarah's Story

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

Local Story

Murante’s Story … in Her Own Words

In yester-years, I was very excited about life. We had lots of livestock and rain was falling twice a year. Those were my best times. I enjoyed life.

When my husband died, life got tougher – he was the breadwinner and he knew many ways to get food for our family. Now that he isn’t around, the task is on me. It has been challenging.

People don’t get food easily here.

Several times my children have gone to bed hungry. It’s a bad thing to experience. It’s quite disturbing to me as a mother.

I hope that one day my children will live a very good life and they will have enough livestock and good families.
