Start Sponsoring a Child Today!

When you sponsor a child in need, you transform a child's life — and you make an eternal difference. Compassion partners exclusively with local churches in developing countries to ensure that each sponsored child learns about the love of Jesus Christ. At your child's development center, he or she also receives:

  • medical checkups, which often save lives
  • health and hygiene training
  • nutritious food and safe water
  • educational assistance, including job-skills training
  • access to special services, like surgeries and diaster relief when needed
  • mentoring, which helps children develop and discover their incredible value as a child of God

Your tax-deductible contribution of $38 a month will change your child's life — and it will change your life, too!

When you sponsor a child, you'll receive your child's photo and personal story by mail in about two weeks. Children feel incredible hope and joy when they find out they have been sponsored. Knowing that someone across the globe cares means more than you can imagine!
