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.
