In February, we were lucky enough to spend a week with the global sponsorship team at ChildFund International, a diverse group of kid-centered professionals representing more than 20 countries on five continents.
During our week-long engagement, we helped the group build alignment around a shared vision for their work for children around the globe. It was first time this global team had ever been in the room together, and it was a powerful week.
We recently returned to ChildFund. Our work in February was focused on their overseas sponsorship team, but the organization also maintains a significant sponsorship team here in Richmond. A small group of managers – with new leadership, new initiatives and significant visibility in ChildFund’s long-term strategic plan – came together with us at the Roslyn Conference and Retreat Center to do a little planning.
As always, I leave my engagements with the ChildFund team inspired by their commitment to two primary groups – the children they serve, and the sponsors who provide the support.
It’s always inspiring to hang out with people who want to change the world.
