A time of celebrations, a time of rejoicing, a time of exchanging gratitude and thankfulness! Such was the atmosphere at the recent Partners Meet hosted in Mumbai last Saturday, February 27th.
We were thrilled to have 194 sponsors from the city of Mumbai participate in the event. Around 70 sponsors had the opportunity of meeting their sponsored child face to face. Here are some of the excerpts from the event for you.
When sponsors met their sponsored child there were moments of joy beyond words
Children from the communities share.
They said their lives have changed and there is nothing standing in the way of their growth to success. These were the highlight of the event and brought us joy back to back.
Kavitha holds a master degree in social studies and is the first woman in her community to do so.
Community members on how their lives have changed.
After World Vision’s intervention, Santhosh quit drinking and now helps others give up the habit.
Government officials from various departments expressed that it is a privilege to partner with World Vision.
Performances by the children
We also heard from sponsors. One of them being Mrs. Lily More who said it is the society’s duty to help the poor.
It was an honour to have film fraternity Mrs. Pamela Chopra with us.
Mr. Issac, sponsor, said that he continued sponsoring and even sponsored new children despite ups and down of his life.
Listening to sponsors was a joy by itself. We got to know that nobody sponsors a child by chance or at random, there is a reason why they do it. The amount of dedication sponsors had put in a child’s life was inspiring.
The event ended with a time of interaction with sponsors who brought forth queries that were answered.
In short, this was an evening well spent. There was warmth and excitement in the air all throughout the event. We want to thank sponsors who took the time to attend the event and for encouraging us with their presence.
