The single most effective way to encourage your sponsored child is with your words.

Whether it's a brief note, Bible verse, photo or full letter, any message you send will bring joy to the child you sponsor. Your words of encouragement can remind them of their value as they navigate the challenges of poverty.

When you write to the child you sponsor, you encourage their emotional and spiritual growth by:

  • Building self-esteem
  • Encouraging learning
  • Nurturing dreams
  • Providing a tangible expression of love
  • Emphasizing a relationship of prayer with Jesus

We encourage you to send two to six messages a year to the child you sponsor. If you're not a big writer, you can still make a big impact by sending birthday and Christmas cards! For some inspiration, try some of these writing prompts.
