"Through Global Family, MCC's education sponsorship program, you help make creative, community-based education available to children and young adults. For more than 70 million children, going to school remains a dream, just out of reach. Their days are filled with working for survival or with domestic chores. Students who achieve education gain confidence and skills that enable them to improve their lives and their communities. As a sponsor, you receive two updates annually, including stories and photos of the program you're supporting. Will you join Global Family in making the dream of education come true?"
