What's it like to visit the child you sponsor? Elizabeth Bowes headed to Tanzania to visit Jeni, the child she sponsors through World Vision UK.

When we realised that we were going to be spending the summer in Uganda, it made sense to organise a trip to visit the child we sponsor there (through the charity World Vision). We sponsor a child for each of our children and this one is C2's special buddy. We were hoping that this visit would inspire some more dedicated letter writing and appreciation of what we were actually achieving in sending the sponsorship money each month. The day did not disappoint!
