That's exactly what our colleague, Marie Chan, experienced when she traveled to Africa last month as part of a monitoring trip to our dedicated programme area, Luangwa, Zambia. 

Not only did Marie meet her sponsored child, but she also had a chance to see some of the amazing achievements made, thanks to the support of New Zealand sponsors. In the following interview, Marie shares about some of her trip highlights:
