Compassion is not just a child sponsorship organization though. We are a child development organization.
Child development begins with a commitment to the children and families we serve and extends beyond simple involvement in their lives to long-term dedication and perseverance. Child development is an investment — an investment of time for a lifetime.
Child development is dynamic. It changes as a child’s needs change. It’s personal, individualized and relational. And it’s tailored to ages, gender, health, cultures and family situations.
Child development equips children today with the skills to succeed tomorrow. It’s long term. It doesn’t occur overnight, and it’s why we employ a holistic model in our work.
