Start Sponsoring a Child Today!

Your tax-deductible contribution of just $43 a month connects a child living in poverty with a loving, church-driven Child Sponsorship Program.

Your support provides:

  • Medical checkups, which often save lives
  • Nutritious food
  • Health and hygiene training
  • Educational assistance
  • Access to special services like surgeries and disaster relief
  • Mentoring to help children discover their incredible value as God’s children
  • Most important of all, your sponsored child will hear about Jesus Christ and be encouraged to develop a lifelong relationship with God. Just imagine how exciting it will be when one day you get to heaven and your sponsored child is there with you because you chose to sponsor him or her.

When you sponsor a child, you'll receive your child's photo, personal story and a child sponsorship packet by mail in approximately 10 days.

When children find out they've been sponsored, the joy they feel is indescribable. Just knowing that someone across the globe cares means more than you can imagine. Sponsoring a child in need will profoundly change the future for your child, and will change your own life as well.

Child Evangelism

Compassion was founded in 1952 by an evangelist named Everett Swanson, and since that time we have not departed from his original vision for child evangelism. In fact, child evangelism is at the core of everything we do. Our whole purpose is to save children by leading them to the feet of Christ and out of poverty.

All around the world, Compassion partners with local churches to engage in child evangelism. Church staff receive training on child evangelism, child development and creating age-appropriate Bible curriculum.

Every child development center incorporates child evangelism into their program activities in an age-appropriate, culturally sensitive way. Each child who attends a Compassion center has the opportunity to hear the gospel and accept Jesus as his or her Savior.

Engage in your own personal child evangelism today by sponsoring a child in need today for just $43 a month. You can offer your child the basic necessities of life, but more importantly, you can offer hope.
