Around the world children living in poverty face extreme obstacles just to survive. Children who do not have an education, access to clean water, and medical care often times repeat the cycle of poverty in their families. But with Compassion International children have hope of escaping poverty. Compassion provides children with access to education, clean water, medical care, and skills to help them earn a better living for their own families some day - breaking the cycle of poverty for them and future generations.
