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 person!”
Children attend church-based child development centers where they receive life-changing opportunities that would otherwise be out of their reach, and which build on, add to and extend their school lessons.
- Ongoing Christian training
- Educational opportunities
- Treatment and training to maintain child health
- Development of self-confidence and social skills
- Key life skills and vocational programs
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.
Compassion consistently receives high ratings for financial accountability and integrity.
