While it is not mandatory, some sponsors like to send gifts to the child they are sponsoring. Feel free to contact me about specific needs of the child you are sponsoring. As a general rule, school supplies, clothing and groceries are useful gifts. Please do not choose gifts that are too extravagant as they promote jealousy between the students.

Letters, on the other hand are widely welcome! Letters can be mailed to me or directly to the school or emailed (we will print out and deliver for you). For the protection of both parties, full names and addresses are not given out, but we will deliver any letters you write to the child. We will also pass along any mail the student writes to you.

We absolutely welcome visitors to the school! Your sponsored child is dying to meet you! The school is located about 3 1/2 hours north of Manila (5 hours by air-conditioned bus). Please let us know your travel plans as soon as possible so we can best accommodate your visit. During the school year, you can visit the student in his/her classes as well as visit the home and family of the child. We do not recommend visiting when school is out (during vacation) as many families visit relatives during the holidays.
