Writing to your Child

Write to My Sponsored Child

On average, you will receive between three to four letters from your child every year. These letters will give you an insight into the impact you are making as you see your child grow and succeed. We highly encourage you to write back to your sponsored child as a way to build a relationship between the two of you. Letters are very special to the children as they are handwritten and something they can save for years.

Sending Through User Portal

You are encouraged to create an account on our website. Through your user portal, you can send letters, attach pictures, and check on your sponsorship. If you wish to handwrite your letter, you can attach an image of the letter or you can mail it to the address below.
