The Story

UnFinished International was conceived in July 2012 when Brian and Christine Cloar traveled on a humanitarian mission trip. During that journey, Brian and Christine were introduced to the children of a local special needs school. Even though Christine grew up in the area, she never knew the school existed. What they discovered during their time there changed everything about their lives. It was an unforgettable experience that transformed their minds and hearts.

The school conditions were poor and in disorder. The school grounds and buildings were in disrepair, and the children’s uniforms were sparse, torn and tattered for those who actually had them. Children were grouped into rooms together and merely managed rather than educated. Some children’s needs were simply not being met.

Seeing all of this first hand inspired Brian and Christine to do something to change the situation. It was on this visit the dream that would become UnFinished International was born.
