How sponsorship works

Receive your welcome letter in the mail

The first thing you’ll receive when you sponsor a child is a welcome letter in the mail! This letter will include your child’s profile, which tells the story of your sponsored child, and your first picture of your sponsored child. The letter will also tell you about life in your child’s country and details of your child’s specific community. You’ll also receive a bookmark which will remind you to pray for your sponsored child every day.

Write a letter and share your life with your sponsored child

While writing to your sponsored child is completely up to you, it does create a great opportunity to get to know your child better. Letter writing helps you see the lasting impact sponsorship has on a young life. We have heard so many stories of relationships that span continents and lifetimes which were created through letter writing. You can write a letter to your sponsored child and send it to us by mail!

Receive updates about your child and their community

We want to keep you up to date with your sponsored child and their community! Each year, you will receive two letters from your sponsored child and an updated photo. You will also receive an annual newsletter which gives you an overview of your sponsored child’s location to let you know what is new and exciting in their community.

Pray for your sponsored child

We do everything we can to care for our sponsored children’s basic physical and spiritual needs. God knows each of our children’s needs better than anyone so we hope that you will join us in regularly praying for your sponsored child, their community and country.
