Educational Needs - Compassion International

Donate to Compassion International to assist with the educational needs of children living in extreme poverty.

Educational Needs Donate to a Child's Education

Secondary education is a critical element in a child’s journey to overcome poverty. Donate today to provide a student with educational opportunities.

How Does Compassion Help?

Compassion’s Educational Needs fund allows a student to stay in school and receive an education that enables them to overcome poverty. Your contribution to the Educational Needs fund will provide:

  • Textbooks and curriculum
  • Supplies and fees for tests and labs
  • Playgrounds, libraries, and computer labs
  • Postsecondary classes
  • Vocational training
  • Literacy and financial training for adult caregivers

The Educational Needs fund provides the resources for children to go beyond their primary education. Contribute to this fund today to keep a student in school.

The Educational Needs Fund Gives Children like those in Chota, Peru the Chance to Work Toward Their Dreams

Thanks to generous donors, three Compassion Child Development Centers in Chota, Peru are implementing library and computer labs. These educational improvements benefit 843 children. As there are no computer labs where the Compassion centers are located, this is a great opportunity for children to learn computer skills in this remote place.

The Compassion centers have changed the spiritual and physical lives of these children, but now their academic futures have changed as well. Limited resources are no longer keeping these children from receiving a good education. Now, they have access to the technology resources they need without traveling to an internet café and paying for access.

Jhander, a high school student, shares his heart, “Thank you, Compassion International. Thank you, sponsors, for believing in us. Thank you for thinking of us. We live surrounded by mountains and far from big cities, but God is here and He has planned this for us.”
