About Compassion International
We are a Christ-centered, church-based, child-focused ministry. Our mission is to release children from poverty in Jesus’ name, and we are the world’s leading authority on holistic child development through sponsorship.
Through our holistic approach to child development, we provide poor children around the world with the care they need to survive and thrive by carefully blending physical, social, economic and spiritual care together.
Since 1952, we have helped millions of children realize their full potential and develop into all God intends them to be.
