Encourage a child in poverty

Write a letter to A CHILD IN NEED

Children living in poverty need encouragement and support. By writing a letter to a child in a Children International community, you can let them know someone cares and is wishing them well. This can be incredibly motivating as they work for a brighter, more hopeful future. If you’re not sure what to say, check out these letter writing tips. Please be aware that letter delivery may take several weeks, and as a result, we recommend not referencing specific points in time like holidays or events in your letter.

NOTE: If you are a current sponsor and want to write a letter to your child, please log in to MyCI and go to the Message Center.

Use simple but positive language and encourage a child to:

  • Stay in school
  • Work hard
  • Give back to their community
  • Believe in themself
  • Hold on to their dreams
  • Never give up hope
