This chapter features first person narratives of sponsored children submitted as exemplars of success in past and present sponsorship programs. By including change stories, the chapter attempt to introduce the voices of the sponsored to the debate over the impact of sponsorship. Although the chapter does not seek to highlight negative stories, in which CS may have been harmful or neutral in their impact on children, an analysis of common themes in these first person accounts provides insight into what sponsorship can do for individuals at its best.
