A Passion for Children in Need

How you can make a difference for children in need

How does Compassion help children in need?    

Children in need find hope with Compassion International thanks to our Christ-centered child development ministry. Compassion, a Christian child advocacy ministry, releases children in need from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.

Compassion is committed to directly transforming each child's individual development. Our model in serving children in need is holistic and has the following bases:

  • Christ centered. Children in need have an opportunity to hear the gospel in an age-appropriate and culturally relevant way. 
  • Child focused. Engaging children in need as complete people, we treat children in need like we'd want our own children treated. 
  • Church based. We partner with churches, parents and communities — to teach, train and mentor children in need. 
  • Committed to integrity. We're dedicated to delivering excellent programs with complete integrity.

Your tax-deductible contribution of just $38 a month connects a child living in poverty with a loving, church-based Child Sponsorship Program.

Your support provides:

  • Food and clean water
  • Medical care
  • Educational opportunities
  • Important life-skills training
  • Most important of all, your sponsored child will hear about Jesus Christ and be encouraged to develop a lifelong relationship with God.

When you sponsor a child, you'll receive your child's photo, personal story and a child sponsorship packet by mail in approximately 10 days.

When children find out they've been sponsored, the joy they feel is indescribable. Just knowing that someone across the globe cares means more than you can imagine. Sponsoring a child in need will profoundly change the future for your child, and will change your own life as well.
