Unbound

Unbound partners with families living in poverty, empowering them to become self-sufficient and fulfill their desired potential.

Category:

KANSAS CITY, KS – EIN 431243999  unbound.org

When you sponsor through Unbound, you offer a hand up — not a handout — to a family working to lift themselves out of poverty through hard work, initiative and hope.Your monthly contribution of $40 directly benefits the specific individual you sponsor to help meet their basic needs.

But your sponsorship does so much more. With your support, our program empowers sponsored individuals and their families with tools to achieve self-sufficiency.

Local staff members work with sponsored families on how to best use their benefits to achieve personal and family goals. This may include resources for:

Nutrition
Health care
Education and skills training
Improved living conditions
Seed capital for a small business or farm
Thanks to your support and encouragement, families are able to invest in their children’s education, develop livelihoods and become active community participants.

Over time, they rely less on sponsorship and more on their own income-generation activities.
