Writing Tips for Sponsors

Nothing can make sponsored children feel special or loved than when they receive letters from their sponsors. It will only take a few minutes to write a letter and let them know that they are remembered.

We highly encourage writing to your scholar and sending a card for birthdays and holidays. The more letters you send, the more wonders you bring to their self-esteem.

Here are some tips:

  • Talk about your family, home, job/school and city
  • Send photographs or postcards
  • Always use the child’s first name
  • Avoid mentioning things outside the child’s realm of experience, such as expensive toys, new cars or homes and luxurious holidays
  • Encourage them to study hard to reach their dreams

To protect your right for privacy ANCOP CANADA will not disclose your contact information.  Exchange of letters between you and your scholar will be facilitated by ANCOP.
