In response to the Great Commission, Compassion International exists as an advocate for children, to release them from their spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enable them to become responsible and fulfilled Christian adults.
We ensure that every child hears the gospel and has the opportunity to trust Jesus. We hope to lead children into a lifestyle of faith and commitment to God.
