Your donation to the Where Most Needed fund will help us better serve children in extreme poverty.
If a 9-year-old can get kids sponsored, so can you!
A quality education is crucial in breaking the cycle of poverty. Your donation helps children attend and stay in school by providing support, tutoring, supplies, and textbooks.
Compassion’s Educational Needs Fund helps children stay in school and learn valuable skills that enable them to be contributing adults in their communities one day. They may receive textbooks, uniforms and fees for labs. They may also receive tutoring with their homework, and spiritual and emotional support when things get tough.
Your donation helps to provide the essential resources for children to go beyond their primary education. Contribute today to keep children in school so they can grow academically and prepare for a successful future.

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.”
