Hi, I was hoping one of the wonderful CI employees could help me :) One of my sponsored children graduated a couple of years ago. I was wondering if it is still possible to contact her outside of compassion. Is there a waiver or anything I need to sign? Do you have contact information for her? He name in Choku and she is from Bangalore, India.

Hi Katie! Because
of the number of children that Compassion ministers to (currently over one
million), we regret that tracking children who are no longer in the Compassion
program is beyond the scope of what Compassion can do. For future reference, in
most cases, you may request a continuing correspondence relationship with a
child who has left or graduated Compassion's program within four months of the child leaving. I do know that she has held you close to her heart for many years and will continue to do so, probably still treasuring your letters. You were a wonderful sponsor to her!

Hi Sarah. Since it's only been 3 months since one mine graduated can you send me a form to fill out to request contact? I sponsor a boy now from the same project and when I visit him I'll be looking for her new bakery business she started after she graduated.

William, I will submit the request to send the continuing correspondence waiver to you. It would be really neat if you were able to visit her bakery when you visit Bolivia!

Thanks. I'll be writing letters to the boy I sponsor from the same project and maybe the pastor can find her bakery. Be a good place to have lunch when I go to Cochabamba next year.
