Corresponding with your sponsored girl
Our girls and their families love getting your letters. It’s never too late to begin a relationship with your sponsored child. If you’ve never communicated directly, why not start now? English is the curriculum language in our partner schools.
At first, simply painting a picture of yourself in words will go a long way toward helping your child in Nepal understand who is generously supporting her education. And there’s no substitute for photos of you, your children, your pets—whatever's meaningful to you that you’d like to share.
If you don't want to establish a correspondence, that’s perfectly fine. We’re so grateful for your financial support.
There are no street addresses in Kathmandu, and no postal delivery service. We rely on friends going to Nepal to hand-carry letters, and we also use e-mail.
You can either send a handwritten note with photos to HIO, and we’ll see that it gets to Nepal. Alternatively, you can send an e-mail to our Nepali directors Ram and Palmo, and they’ll deliver the e-mail to your sponsored child on their iPad. We encourage you to communicate with your sponsored girl as often as you wish. Over the past 30 years, we’ve seen many efforts to correspond blossom into wonderful friendships. It sometimes takes persistence to establish a bond, but the rewards can be heartwarming.
