Summary This chapter considers child sponsorship through the perspectives of seven sponsored children and previously sponsored adults. These anecdotes come from individuals of different ages, socio-economic backgrounds, education levels and child sponsorship organisations and models. Their perspectives are presented in their own voices, and the chapter then offers analysis of the common themes which run through all seven stories, including powerfully affirming relationships, the value placed on expanded educational opportunties, benefits of personalised sponsorship over institutionalised assistance and the value of communication and relationship with sponsors.
