Absolutely! In fact, we encourage you to write your child – that’s one of the most meaningful and influential aspects of sponsorship. You can find letter writing ideas here. Your child will write you two times a year, and will also reply to every letter you send. Feel free to also include small items that can fit in a first-class mailing envelope such as photos, poetry, stickers, etc. If you’d like to send a special gift (i.e. for a birthday or Christmas), we recommend a financial gift in the $20-$40 range. We encourage the gift to be financial so that items can be purchased on location, thereby lowering overhead costs and investing in the child’s local economy. Depending on the current needs, all special gifts will be used to either directly bless your child, his or her family, or a group of children in the program (including your child) on his/her behalf. When giving any special gift, please indicate who the gift is for and the occasion in the notes section online, or in the memo line of a mailed check. All letters and gifts should be sent to:
