May I contact my sponsored student directly?

Can I visit the student I support?
May I send my student a letter or gift?
On special occasions, a small gift may be given to students, but it is neither required nor expected. If sponsors choose to send a gift, the item(s) must fit into a manila envelope and be less than $50 USD in value. All gifts must be coordinated through the President or the Director of Operations. Donations can also be given online via the PathLight website. A gift or gift card will be purchased by the staff in Belize.
