Connecting with your child
One of the greatest joys of sponsoring a child is the personal relationship that you and your child will develop. When you become a sponsor, we will send you a special packet that includes an envelope and a form where you can send your child a photo and information about you or your family. Sponsored children will cherish the letters and photos you send them.
Our field staff will translate your letter and deliver it to the child you are sponsoring.
Your child will write to you at least once each year. We encourage you to write to him or her as often as you like. The more encouragement and contact you have with them, the more both of you will experience the joy that comes from your relationship.
If you prefer to send your letters via the mail, please send them to this address:

What to write about:
You might talk about your family, your church, your school or pets. Your child would also like to know about the area where you live and the kind of work you do. Colorful pictures, photographs or picture postcards are always appreciated. It is best to avoid speaking about material possessions like your home, cars or toys. Please remember your child lives in a needy environment and has been deprived of many things that we take for granted.
Thank you for sponsoring your child. We pray it will be a rewarding experience for both of you!
