Child Slavery

Social Justice
The Issue

When a family is gripped by poverty and is desperate for survival, children become vulnerable to violations like trafficking, prostitution, early marriage and child labor. Your church can prevent this through child sponsorship.

Chet-Lowe.jpg A Pastor's Perspective

Chet Lowe, Outreach Pastor of Calvary Chapel in Fort Lauderdale, was formerly a missionary in Liberia during the civil war. He was shot at, put on trial and in the middle of hell. But nothing was as horrific as having a teenage pimp pushing a 12-year old girl on him for sex. Read More

Child sponsorship. Every child sponsored through Compassion is known, loved and protected by the staff at his or her local, indigenous church. These Compassion church partners serve as safe havens for children who are vulnerable, giving them the care and protection needed to ward off the most common afflictions of extreme global poverty.

Host a child sponsorship event. We'll provide tools and resources to introduce your church family or ministry group to the issues of poverty and oppression. As you share God's heart for children and the poor, your church will be energized to fight for justice in Jesus' name by sponsoring children in areas of the world where child rights violations are prevalent.

How Does It Work?

Individuals and families within your church will have the opportunity to see photos of children who are in need of sponsors. For $38 per month, they can select a child and begin serving that child's spiritual, educational and health needs via services delivered through the loving touch of his or her local, indigenous church.

How Will This Strengthen My Church?

Sponsorship is a two-way street. As people develop relationships with their sponsored children through prayers, letter writing and monthly giving, their own faith roots will have the opportunity to grow. Not only will they be changing a child's reality and future, they will be opening the door for God to do the same in their own life.
