Sponsor a Child — At Compassion we take a committed, long-term approach to fighting child poverty. Our Holistic Child Development Model is made up of four comprehensive programs investing in children from the beginning of their lives until they’ve reached adulthood, and covering everything from prenatal care to university-level education.
Our one-to-one Child Sponsorship Program allows you to personally connect with a specific child in poverty and build a life-changing relationship. When you sponsor a child, you have the opportunity to influence that child during adolescence, one of the most pivotal developmental periods.
Compassion is not just a child sponsorship organization though. Three additional programs round out the holistic child development model of our work with children in poverty. Those other programs of our model include: Child Survival, Leadership Development and Complimentary Interventions.

You can make an eternal difference in the life of a child who is waiting for a sponsor. Sponsor a child in poverty who has been waiting 6 months or longer!
When you sponsor a child in poverty, your sponsored child will be linked directly to you. Your sponsored child will know your name and you will be able to write letters to each other.
