What is the Most Interesting Thing Your Sponsor Has Told You?

positive words for kids You will often hear us mention the importance of writing letters [3] to your sponsored child. That is because your letters have proven, over and over again, to be a precious gift [4] to those receiving them.

The things you share in your letters may sometimes feel like everyday news to you, but the truth is, your words encourage, motivate and provide tangible evidence to a child living in poverty that he or she is loved.

Recently we asked a group of children in Togo this question,
