International pen pal and sponsorship

for a connection with GREATER IMPACT

Did you know that being a pen pal is still a thing? The process may look a little different today than when the phrase “pen pal” was first coined, but digital words carry the same weight and meaning as those written on paper.

And when you become a sponsor and write your child, your words can have a profound impact. As a mentor to a child in poverty, simply expressing you care and that you believe in their ability to change their life provides a big boost of confidence and hope.
