Sponsor an At Risk Child

Every day, millions of at risk children worldwide from all backgrounds, ages, religions and cultures suffer abuse, violence and exploitation.  These violations include many forms of physical, sexual and emotional abuse, neglect, and exploitations such as forms of child labor, prostitution, trafficking, early marriages, and harmful cultural practices.

Violations are most often perpetrated by those closest to the at risk child and at other times by total strangers.  A number of countries experience higher incedences of child rights violations, posing a greater risk for children living there than those in other countries.  According to UNICEF's "State of the World's Children" 2010 report, and Compassion's Child Abuse Cases reported in fiscal year 2010/2011 higher incidences of child rights violations have been found in Uganda, Nicaragua, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Burkina Faso, India, Bangladesh, Kenya, Dominican Republic, Colombia and Bolivia.

Compassion is opposed to all forms of child abuse and exploitation.  Our Child Sponsorship Program promotes a safe and healthy environment at church-based centers where children can learn, interact and play in safety.  The program also engages the active commitment of caring adults who personally, know love and seek to protect these children.

Workers at our child development centers are trained in child protection.  These staff members also teach children and parents how to prevent exploitation and abuse.  Compassion works hard to prevent abuse, but in the unfortunate case of a child who experiences a violation, a plan of action is in place.  Compassion programs enable an immediate response to safeguard, defend ant ultimately restore the child.

Your sponsorship of an at risk child provides child-protection education, action planning and an immediate respone to abuse when needed.
