The girl we sponsor in Peru got accepted to university and will start there in March 2020. (She will be 20 in March as well) I don't think her university is near the Compassion Center where she has been associated with all this time.  I know we can sponsor her until age 22 which we are happy to do.  But how can she receive her correspondence from us and send us letters if she is not nearby.

Hi Candy! Wow, we are thrilled to know that Carol will be attending university in the spring! I was able to read her letter and found that Carol will be living at home during her time in university. Since she will be living at home, the center will be able to easily deliver your letters to her and her letters to you as well. When students attend universities that are far away and they board there, the center staff do make regular check ins with the student and the school to make sure they are ok. The student themselves may be able to write letters to the sponsor during that time, or they may have a center worker help write the letters for them, discussing what to share with the sponsor so that the sponsor is still able to get an accurate picture of what is happening in the student's life. It sounds like you should continue to hear directly from Carol since she will still be living at home :).
