Those who sponsor a child quickly realize that their generous donations provide so much more than the pillars of our program. While health, education, life skills and employment provide the foundation to help kids make big changes, there are many intangibles that also foster transformation.
One of those less tangible tools that makes a significant difference for individual children are the letters and words their sponsors send to them. Whether it is providing guidance and consolation during a difficult time, encouraging them to continue doing well in school, or simply sharing some of your own personal life and asking them about theirs, your words matter.
How do we know your words make a meaningful difference? Sponsored children and youth tell us so. See for yourself in this video, and please share your thoughts and experiences about communicating with your sponsored child in the comments!
Please note: Some of the footage in this video was taken before our letter-distribution process changed. The pandemic forced us to pivot to an entirely digital experience. Your words still have the same powerful impact. Learn more.
