Write A Letter
Poverty causes a lack of hope and confidence—but your letters have the power to change this.
Your words can help your sponsored child believe in themselves, inspire them to study harder at school, and even draw them closer to God. Over and over, graduates from the Child Sponsorship Program say their sponsors’ letters gave them hope, courage and the belief they could overcome their circumstances. Letters often become a child’s treasured possessions, decorating their walls at home. (And let’s be honest—your child’s letters in reply will probably proudly sit on your fridge!)
Some great news? You don’t need to be a novelist for your letters to make an impact. It can be hard to know what to say to someone who lives half way around the world, but we’ve got some great tips to get your writing juices going.
So go on, find a pen (or your computer—you can write online!). Writing a letter will only take a few minutes, but the impact can last a lifetime.
