FAQ

How much does it cost to sponsor a child?

  • Can I write my sponsored child?

  • Absolutely! We have you write your child for security reasons using the Cry of India address. PO Box 50855 Indianapolis, IN 46250. We forward your letters to India to be translated and given to your child. Their answers are returned the same way. Please allow several weeks for this process to take place. The children ususally write back about twice per year. For further information please call our office toll free at (877) 991-4634
  • Guidelines for writing a letter.

  • Simply send your letter to the Cry of India office with your child's name and ID number clearly identified on the letter. The schools identify the children by their ID number because so many names are the same. Please be mindful of our translators and limit your letter to one or two paragraphs. Our staff will be happy to share it with your child!
  • When writing or sending cards to the children we ask that you do not send any cards that have electronics in them, such as music or talking cards. These types of communications stop our packets of mail from going through because of security screening purposes and customs.
  • You may feel free to include a photograph of your family. Profile pictures that do not display matierial possessions are best.
  • Can I visit my sponsored child?

  • If you will be in India and are interested in visting your child, please contact the Cry of India office 2-3 months prior to your trip, and we'd be honored to arrange an opportunity for you to meet your sponsored child and see his/her school.
