Sponsoring Children

Sponsor a Longest Waiting Child

Have you ever waited ... and waited ... for a dream to come true? Hundreds of children on Compassion's sponsorship waitlist know this feeling all too well.

As each month passes by, many begin to wonder why no one chooses them. But you can tell a child “I choose you” today!

Sponsoring Children: Why It Works

In a world where 333 million children live on less than $2.15 a day, child sponsorship is an effective way to provide children with resources, compassion and hope. Through sponsorship, a waiting child can discover their true value through the local church, a caring sponsor and a relationship with Jesus.

For $43/month a sponsored child receives

About Compassion’s Child Sponsorship Program

When you participate in Compassion’s child sponsorship program, you are investing in a waiting child’s future. Compassion’s program is:

  • Christ-centered: Jesus is the core of our ministry. His life and teachings shape our programs, reflect the spiritual commitments of our staff and guide how we love, respect and cooperate with the nations.
  • Church-driven: Local churches are a catalyst for community change. We partner with them to address the unique needs of the children living in their communities.
  • Child-focused: Our focus is on the individual child and caring for each of their needs. We ensure each child we serve is supported individually and holistically: mind, body and spirit.
