Compassion International is now serving nearly 125,000 children in India through offices in Chennai and in Kolkata. This trip is an opportunity for you to experience both regions in the same trip. You will join a ministry team from across the United States armed with encouragement and appreciation for the profound work they are doing to transform this generation of children.

When you decided to sponsor a child with Compassion what was it that inspired you to choose a child from India? Was it the knowledge of the desperate poverty found there, or was it the beauty and uniqueness of their culture? At present it is estimated that well over 1 billion people live in this country. While much of the country rejects the notion of a caste system, the reality is that many millions of children and adults have known the powerlessness and hopelessness of abject poverty. It is among these beautiful people that Compassion is partnering with hundreds of evangelical churches to release them from poverty in Jesus’ name.
