Compassion began its ministry in Burkina Faso in 2005. Since then, hundreds of thousands of generous people have donated to children in Burkina Faso through our Child Sponsorship Program. Your tax-deductible support to help children in Burkina Faso provides the vital resources these vulnerable children need to escape what is often a generational cycle of poverty successfully.

Your monthly sponsorship donation to help a child in Burkina Faso actually benefits the child's entire family.

  • Children receive nutritious food, medical services, educational tutoring, clean water, extracurricular activities, and service opportunities.
  • Adolescents receive vocational training in carpentry, tailoring, crocheting, etc., so they can help the family and prepare for their future.
  • Parents can participate in adult literacy classes as well as quarterly classes on topics addressing hygiene, parenting, and sanitation. They also have access to income-generation training.
