What about continuing contact? Can I continue to email or write to my sponsored child?

Updated Wednesday 15 March, 2017

We’re very sorry, but we no longer have any program presence in India and therefore we will not be able to facilitate communication between you and your sponsored child.

For super-engaged sponsors only who ask directly about this and meet the following criteria:

  • The sponsored child is over 15 years old
  • Sponsor has sponsored the child for over 5 years (or visited child)
  • Sponsor has written at least 10 letters to child (or visited child)

You can choose to include your email address in your final letter. This is not something we recommend, and sharing this information is not without risk, as it’s possible that others in your child’s family or community could contact you. Because of that, we advise you to create a new email address that you use specifically for communicating with your sponsored child. It will then be your sponsored child’s responsibility to make the first contact with you. We advise you not to include your street address or phone number.
