One of the most exciting parts of sponsoring is getting a letter from your child. At first the letters are scribbles, but each year as they grow older, the letters become more complex and fun. Then the day arrives when you receive a letter with legible writing! 

Have you ever wondered how we gather all that information on your sponsor child? Here's a little picture tour of how the process goes.

First, we interview your child!

  • What do you like to play?
  • What do you like to study in school?
  • What do you want to be when you grow up?

Then we take a picture for you! SMILE!

While the children wait to see the doctor, they write their letters to you.

Our doctors and nurses check every child over carefully. Check-ups sometimes bring tears, but we want our kids to be healthy!

After all the info is gathered, the check-ups are done, and the letters are written, we bring all the cards and letters back here to our US office. We enter the info in the database, translate the letters and send them to you!

When your letter arrives in the mail, don't forget to post a selfie with it to your favorite social media using #cohcommunity! 

You haven't started sponsoring yet? Now is the perfect time to begin! Here are a bunch of children who still need sponsors:

My name is Kayla Johnson.  I live in Lubbock, Texas and I am 10 years old.  I first learned about Malawi when my mom’s friend, Malinda, came back from her trip there.  She showed me pictures from her trip.  There was a picture of Malinda with some kids and one of them had a very raggedy and torn up shirt.  I was like, “I want to help.  What can I do to help?”  Malinda told me about being a sponsor and showed me sponsor cards.  It took me a LONG time to decide which kid I wanted to sponsor. I finally chose a girl named Monisi who was 12 and a boy named Evasi who was 4.  I used my money from stock showing to pay for one of them.  I got the money for the second kid by painting pictures and selling them.      

This summer my mom went to Malawi.  When she came back I decided to sponsor 2 little kids that my mom met in Patricia’s home.  I got very attached to them because I got to see pictures and videos that she took when she was there.  One girl, Esther, tried to eat my mom’s finger!  It was very funny. 

What I want to tell everybody is:  Just because you are a kid, doesn’t mean you can’t make your mark on the world.
