Letter writing is an important part of family or child sponsorships, as it allows you to build deeper bonds with the people you are helping. However, many sponsors struggle to construct letters. These ideas can help to get started.

1. Learn as much as you can about your sponsored child or family before you start. The letter should be personal and demonstrate how much you care. Remember that culture and background inform who this person is.
2. Keep the tone of the letter positive and ask questions about cultural events. If you have received any letters, you can also use these as the basis of the questions you ask.
3. Make sure you are aware of topics that may cause consternation. Don’t bring up material possessions or ask what your sponsored family or child might want as a gift. In some cultures, this can place the person in an awkward social situation. Also be aware of any terminology or slang that may be unfamiliar to the recipient.
