My dear Kalpesh is a wonderful 10 year old boy from the project IN-905. This boy is an absolute sweetheart! I have received 26 letters from him since the beginning of this year. 26!
While I can't garauntee that this is something every child in this project does, clearly, their project is open to letting the kids write whenever they want to. Kalpesh answers every, single letter than I write to him. He always answers every question I ask and then asks his own questions. We completely have a pen pal relationship, a constant conversation going on between the two of us.
I currently have three packets from this project. If you sponsor one of these children, you could be on your way to 2-4 letters a month!
If you would like to sponsor one of these children, please email me at Groth.Kayla@mail.ic.edu or message me on O.C.

IN-905 is on the plains of Kotada, where about 5,500 people live.
Typical houses are made of mud floors, bamboo walls, and tile roofs (as you can see in the background of the pictures). The regional diet consists of maize, chicken, beef, rice, and potatoes. Common health problems in this area include malaria, tuberculosis, and gastrointestinal diseases. Most adults work as farmers and earn $41 a month.
This community most needs scholastic materials, employment opportunities, food, and improved housing.
I encourage you prayerfully consider sponsoring one of these children!
