Sponsor a Child

Sponsor a child today and transform despair into hope.

When you sponsor a child, you can exchange letters, photos and prayers.  You can even choose to visit the child you sponsor.

You can change a child's life from one of hardship and loneliness to one of hope and meaning.  You have the opportunity to literally bring the love of Christ to a child in need.

Compassion's ministry to children in need is unique.  Our Child Sponsorship Program is:

  • Church Based. Compassion is the only child sponsorship organization that works exclusively with local churches in the developing world.

  • Christ Centered. Our ministry gives every child in our program the opportunity to hear about Jesus Christ.

  • Child Focused. Each child has one sponsor, someone like you, who exchanges letters, photos and prayers and provides necessities like food, health care and educational opportunities.

Your support of about a dollar a day can change one child's life forever.  When you sponsor a child, you can give a boy or girl in need:

  • Educational opportunities

  • Improved health care

  • Life-skills training

  • Sponsored children will also have the opportunity to follow Jesus Christ in faith and deed as part of their spiritual training.

Sponsoring a child through Compassion allows you to witness a miracle firsthand, following your child's growth as as he or she is nurtured to health, educated and exposed to the gospel of Jesus Christ.  At Compassion, we say that nurturing a child, connecting that child to a local church and having someone like you in a child's life is the most strategic way to make a difference in the life of a child in need.

The cost to sponsor a child is just $38 per month.  You may cancel your child sponsorship at any time.

Each child deserves the hope of Jesus Christ.  Will you give one child that blessing?  Will you sponsor a child?

Give a child hope for the future and for all eternity. Sponsor a child today!

What Our Sponsors Are Saying

Pamela in Waxahachie, Texas


Yes, I would recommend Compassion to a friend.

Love One Another My husband and I sponsor 9 children. My prayer is that we will be able to support even more. Sponsoring these children are such a blessing for both of us. We want them to know that they are loved by God and us. It is such a blessing to receive a letter from them and then communicate back to them to encourage them and to let them know that we do truly care for them and their family.

Love this organization! I have sponsored for 12 years and it has been such a blessing. I have also traveled with Compassion to Haiti and Kenya where I have seen the work they are doing and met both of my sponsored kids. Trust me when I say the relationships are real and your letters matter. I have looked through my 18 year olds file that documents every gift, medical exam and home visit, Compassion has great integrity and is making a huge difference in individuals and communities.

Truly a blessing!!! We currently sponsor three children in Bolivia, and we have been blessed to meet them in person through mission trips with our church. We continue to be amazed and thankful for the great work that Compassion does. It is a truly beautiful ministry of support and development, and its positive influence multiplies throughout the communities where children are sponsored. We have seen many people come to Christ through Compassion. We are happy & humbled to be a part of it!
