Trip Reflections

7 days, 8 child sponsors, 1 team of World Vision staff and the whole Dhemaji ADP (Area Development Programme) community. Being there really took my breath away.

After the orientation and briefing at World Vision's office, I started racking my brain for gifts for my dear little brother (my sponsored child). What size should I get for him? How tall is he? Will he enjoy some eduational toys?

Mongolia – an exotic and faraway land; a country that I knew very little about. So when our Human Resources department presented World Vision’s list of children up for sponsorship*, I chose to sponsor a child from Mongolia; out of curiosity more than anything else. That was 4 years ago. Little did I know then that this decision would lead to an eventual trip (company sponsored!) to that very country to meet with my sponsored child.

A group of 13 strangers embarked on a journey to Tien Lu earlier this year in April. They met with different stories but ended with a shared inspiration – that it is not so much about what they can give to the poor but what being among them can do to enrich their lives.
