Communicate with Your Student

 Write to Your Student

Writing to your student at least a couple times a year means the world to them!

When you write to the student you sponsor, he/she will write back to you. As soon as we receive the reply from the student, we will forward it to you. The students are on a summer break right now (later than normal, mostly due to COVID). The planned return to the boarding homes is mid-June for 1st - 10th and 12th standard (grade) students and late June for the plus one (11th grade) classes.

 Send a Letter or Postcard

There have been delivery issues with postal mail during COVID-19. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that your mail will arrive at its destination in India.

Send only flat envelopes, like a letter or a card. You may include a photograph or two. Consider including other family members or pets or a landmark near the place where you live in a photo – like a corn field, a lake, flowers, a tree or a mountain.

Please do not send cash or gifts directly to your student. A student that receives a lavish gift can be excluded by other students. A large package may not even make it to the LPGM India Office and therefore will not be delivered to your sponsored student. Your sponsorship support is the best way to love, support and encourage the young student.

Address your letter like this:

Student Name/Student ID Number
LPGM India
Post Bag 59
Cuddalore 607 001
TN South India

Use our office as the return address to protect your privacy:

Lutheran Partners in Global Ministry
4570 W 77th St Ste 124
Minneapolis MN 55435-5024

It is best to visit the post office to obtain the correct amount of postage to mail your envelope.

As soon as we receive the reply from the student, we will forward it on to you in the same manner in which you wrote to him/her.

Thank you for writing to your sponsored student!
