When a child communicates to a sponsor outside of the processes in place, they are actually breaking school rules. Again, we are asking you to help us by communicating only through the systems in place.
There are reasons this system is set up the way it is. For one, the letters are all processed through our trained social workers at the school, ensuring the safety of our children. Second, communication outside of these methods leaves room for misunderstandings and ultimately, it is for the best interest of all involved.
Please come alongside us in this way. If your sponsored child attempts to contact you through Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp or any other medium outside of Buyamba, please first remind them that Buyamba does not allow students to use social media with their sponsors and to please write to you through the social worker and you will get letters accordingly. If it persists, please notify our offices and we will help get these communications back on track.
