Sponsor a Student

Sponsor a student and show them that they can change their communities! Being born in poverty doesn’t stop a student from fulfilling his or her dreams. Sponsored students are eager to learn and passionate about leading their families and friends out of poverty.

When you sponsor a student, you help develop a future leader. The Compassion International sponsorship program is unique in the following ways:

  • Church Based – The student will find educational tutoring, training in life skills, and biblical instruction in a local church setting. Compassion works exclusively with local churches in developing countries.
  • Christ Centered – The student you sponsor will hear about Jesus and His gift of salvation.
  • Child Focused – Each student in the program has only one sponsor. You can exchange letters and photos with your sponsored student. Each student will receive food, clean water, medical care, and more.
  • Committed to Integrity – Compassion International holds to high standards of integrity and strives to be transparent and above reproach in every aspect of finances.

Sponsor a student through Compassion International and give them hope for the future.
