Contacting your Sponsored Person

We encourage you to get to know your student or monk in India, and learn about their situation and their daily lives.

Write as soon as you can after confirmation of your sponsorship. We suggest that you write first to break the ice and introduce yourself.

Tell your new friend about yourself – about your family, where you live, your occupation, and what is happening in your life. They will be very interested to know who you are.

Not too much information at once though. Photos are always welcome.


The monks and students in India can usually find someone to translate or write for them.

So you can write to you monk or student in English.

Sending Parcels to Monks & students

It is difficult to ensure that parcels sent to India will actually reach their destination. Best results come when you know of someone travelling to South India, who will deliver your parcel in person.

OR you can simply add the occasional gift of a little extra money with your regular payment.

Please don’t give up if you don’t hear from your beneficiary. Letters to/from India don’t always get through.
