Child Sponsorship

Compassion is one of the largest and most influential child sponsorship organizations in the country. Our one to one child sponsorship model is unique among organizations of its kind. The holistic child development program is currently changing the lives of more than one million children around the world.

Individual child sponsorship is the core of Compassion's ministry. The personal relationship forged between a sponsor and a child can, and often does have a transformational effect on every aspect of a child's life.

Child sponsorship is a perfect avenue for sharing God' love with children in need. Once a child understands the love and sacrifice given to him by his sponsor, he is better able to grasp just how valuable he is to God.

When you become a part of Compassion's child sponsorship program, you have the opportunity to radically change the world for one child and walk in obedience to God's command to care for the poor. So what are you waiting for? Sign up to sponsor a child today!

Child Sponsorship
Child sponsorship is critical

In a world where more than a billion children live on less than U.S.$2 per day, connecting one child with one sponsor is the most strategic way to end child poverty.

Through monthly gifts, prayer and letter writing, sponsors invest in the lives of children living in extreme poverty. This relationship communicates, “You are an important little person!”

Children attend church-based child development centers where they receive life-changing opportunities that would otherwise be out of their reach. All Compassion-sponsored children have the opportunity to develop their God-given potential and be released from the poverty that has trapped their families for generations.
