Why haven’t the questions in my letter been answered? There can be a number of reasons why your sponsored child may not respond to questions in your letter: It may take a while for your sponsored child to gain confidence in writing. It may be because your letters have overlapped. It’s possible your sponsored child didn’t bring your letter to the district letter writing event. Ugandan culture sometimes doesn’t allow a child to ask questions, leading to a reticence in a child to share their feelings. You might like to draw attention to questions by underlining or highlighting them.
