Get to know me - Sponsored children are very grateful and consider themselves blessed to have sponsors who want to get to know them. The children are touched by the affection you express in your letters and the prayers you share with them.
The children are as curious to know more about your lives and families, as you are to know about them.

Research Shows: Child Sponsorship Through Compassion Works
Among numerous findings, research shows that children who participated in our sponsorship program stayed in school longer, were more likely to have salaried or white-collar employment and were more likely to be leaders in their communities and churches than their peers who did not participate in our program.
What Your Sponsored Child Wants to Hear From You
The things you share in your letters may sometimes feel like every day news to you but your words encourage, motivate and provide tangible evidence to a child living in poverty that they are loved.
How Long Does My Sponsorship Last?
Our completion guidelines include consideration of the child's age, our goals for each individual child and the goals each child has personally set.

How Do We Teach the Children in Our Programs?
We have created a global curriculum to help develop children holistically—physically, spiritually, cognitively and socio-emotionally. It is designed to be nonacademic, similar to an after-school enrichment program.
How is Our Sponsorship Program Different Than "Regular" Schooling?
Many sponsors have the misconception that we runs schools. We do not. However, we do facilitate a holistic child development program that complements and supplements the school systems in the countries we work in.
