We asked sponsored children what they love most about the sponsorship relationship.

The number one thing children mentioned was receiving letters! Here are a few responses -->


The relationship a sponsor forms with their sponsored child is one marked by encouragement and care. We know children are buoyed by loving adults who show interest in their development, schooling, spiritual formation, and more. That care is best expressed through sending a letter to a sponsored child. NCM has long had a "snail-mail" system of letter exchange. We are grateful to all sponsors who utilize it throughout the year, and it will continue to function as normal. But in this digital age, we are happy to announce a "digital letter portal" now available to all sponsors. Through it, you can write a letter online and upload a photo for your sponsored child. We will collect, print, translate, and mail the letter for you, and you will still receive a response through the postal service! Scroll down for a tutorial.
