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.

Teaching Compassion to Your Child Made Simple

Teaching Compassion Can Be Difficult

Teaching compassion to a child isn’t as simple as it sounds. Children are usually aware of only what’s in their world and what affects them. Teaching compassion to young children can be difficult if they have no opportunities to give to others. In addition, teaching compassion to a young child in the context of global poverty can be overwhelming.

Teaching Compassion Through Child Sponsorship

The meaning of compassion, much less teaching compassion, can be hard to grasp when every day nearly 27,000 children younger than 5 die from mostly preventable causes. But Compassion offers your family a practical way to begin teaching compassion to your child: sponsoring a child.

Teaching Compassion Can Begin Today

Teaching Compassion to your child can be done for as little as $43 a month. That’s all teaching compassion costs when you sponsor a child through Compassion. For pennies a day, your family can sponsor a child who lives in desperate poverty.

Your sponsored child will know your name, send you letters, and receive your prayers. Your sponsored child will exchange letters with your family, giving your children ample opportunity to learn about his or her world. So begin teaching compassion to your child — sponsor a child today!
