Why does my child’s letter response seem impersonal?

World Help

Sometimes the letters you receive from your sponsored child may seem impersonal, or they may not directly address the questions you asked in your most recent letter. There are a few reasons for this.

Many children are still learning to read, write, and speak in English. To help with this, their teachers may give them a letter prompt or template to follow. Younger children who are not able to write may opt to draw a picture instead. Other times, one of our partners at the program may help construct a letter with them or write on their behalf.

We encourage you to keep writing to your child, sharing stories, and asking specific questions. Sponsored children love to hear from their sponsors, often keeping the letters in a special place to read over and over again.
