We encourage you to write to your Sponsored Child and tell them about your life in New Zealand.
Sponsored Children love the opportunity to learn about New Zealand and in turn, you will receive a letter from your Sponsored Child or, if they are too young, written on behalf of them by their parents or a local World Vision staff member.
If you’re not sure what to write, why not tell them about your life in New Zealand, your family and what you like to do for fun. Remember to keep your letters short and simple as in many of the countries where we work English is not the first language of the World Vision staff translators.
Please include your sponsored child's ID and name on your letter and the back of the envelope. Do not write your address on the letter as it could fall into the wrong hands. Address the envelope to the World Vision address shown on your sponsored child's information sheet.
Alternatively, sending an email to your Sponsored Child works just like sending them a letter through the post, only you don't need to go to the post box. You can enter all the details of your letter here, including uploading photos, a handwritten letter or a drawing from your child: Send an email your sponsored child.
