We'd love to make it easy for you. Just answer a few questions and get matched — your sponsorship journey is just a click away!
Every day, our global church partners see how the food crisis devastates impoverished communities. And we need your help. With your support, local leaders can intervene in urgent situations like this to provide essential items and sustainable solutions for struggling children and families.
When you sponsor a child, you care for and encourage them through prayer, letter writing and financial support. That support
empowers a local church to individually and holistically meet their needs in a loving, safe community where they can learn,
grow, play and dream.
When you become a sponsor, you are personally connected with a child who will know your name and treasure the thought that you
care about them.
Your support gives a child life-changing opportunity to develop spiritually, emotionally, physically and economically.
It's a relationship more powerful than poverty — changing their life and yours!

According to a poll of top development economists, child sponsorship is THE most effective long-term development intervention for
helping the poor. It not only addresses immediate physical needs but also helps build self-esteem and self-respect.
Our program is run entirely by local Christian churches in Africa, Asia, Central America and South America. Why? Local churches are
experts on their communities' needs.
Through partnerships with local churches, we empower people from each child's community to care for them so that, regardless of
location, our model is culturally appropriate and relevant. But in all cases, we provide love, education, health care, nutrition and
opportunities to hear the gospel.
Wondering where Compassion helps children? Below is a current list of where we work.
Since the Rev. Everett Swanson first ministered to orphans living on the streets of South Korea during the Korean War, Compassion
has expanded to serve over 25 different countries and over four million children. Through frontline church partners, we provide
children with the opportunity to rise above their circumstances and become all God has created them to be.
“My life is true confirmation that God has a plan for each one of us and has mysterious ways to fulfill the plan. The way
God used sponsors through Compassion to transform my life is one of those mysteries.”
