Letter From a Sponsored Child (Sponsor Today!)

As most of you know by now, I sponsor children through Compassion Internationl and I am participating in Compassion's blog month. Sadly, this the last blog of the month (of course I'll keep writing, do not fret!). This week's challenge is to write from the perspective of a sponsored child. I'm going to pretend that I'm a young girl in India, writing to her sponsor about her Compassion project.


Dear Sponsor,

I am so happy to have you as a friend. Thank you very much for sending me and my sister a letter. We are very happy.

We are very grateful that you choose to support us. I want to tell you the kinds of things Compassion provides us. Each time I visit the project, I get a healthy and nutritious meal. I like this very much because at home, my family cannot afford much food.
Compassion helped our community out by building a tap where we can get clean water. We don't have to spend hours each day carrying water from the dirty river. This saves my sister and I much time each day, so we can focus more on our studies.
Your sponsorship helps me attend the local school for girls. I am very happy to be getting a good education. Math is my favorite subject. I hope that someday I can become a teacher to help teach children just like me.
After school, I am able to go attend a sewing class that Compassion holds for girls. Learning this skill will help me earn extra money for my family when I am older. I am learning how to sew pretty clothes.
After sewing class, I sometimes have time to play with my friends on the playground that Compassion built for us. I like the slide very much.

Compassion has trained a few good doctors in our community. Last month, when I got sick, they were able to give me the medicine I needed and now I'm feeling much better.
Every Saturday, I go to the project to attend church and bible lessons. My teachers have taught me how to read the bible well and how to pray for everything. I pray for you, sponsor, every day. I pray that God blesses you and keeps you healthy.

My family is very happy that I get to be a part of the Compassion program. My parents also get to attend classes on how to make more money and how to take care of me and my siblings. Our whole family is learning a lot. We love you, my sponsor, very much.
With Lots of Love,
Your Indian Daughter
If you are feeling inspired by this blog and are as amazed as I am with how much good Compassion International does in the lives of children and their families, maybe it's time for you to sponsor a child too.
For only $38 a month, you can give a child everything I mentioned in the letter that I wrote. It really is amazing how that little of money can give a child so much.
Please visit Compassion International's Website by clicking on the link I just posted or clicking on the flashing banner on the right on my blog.
You won't regret and you won't miss that money at all when you get that first letter from your sponsored child. 



  1. Very nice! I love the pictures that go along with this! Are they ones that you took?

    You've done a good job explaining the many benefits these children receive!

    1. No, I wish that I took those pictures! Every part of my heart longs to visit India.

      The pictures came from many, many detailed Google image searches. I tried hard to find ones with young girls in them that I could pretend were the same girl throughout.
