Poverty is growing. Nearly 100 million people have entered poverty since the start of the 2020 pandemic. This reversal of so much poverty-alleviation progress makes our mission urgent. Currently, we partner with more than 8,000 frontline churches in 27 countries to serve more than 2.2 million children. At each Compassion child development center, children receive nutritious meals, educational support, medical care, and love and encouragement from their pastor and center staff. Yet even in just those countries we currently work in, over 170 million more children in desperate poverty need us. And the only thing stopping us from helping them is our own capacity to grow.
Where We Want to Go
507 new centers in local churches across Africa, Asia and Latin America.
Unsponsored Kids Covered
191,000 unsponsored children cared for to enable that expansion.
New Children Registered
228,000 new children registered at both new and existing centers.
We are committed to providing immediate and consistent support to every child in our program, even while they are still waiting to be sponsored or when they’ve lost their existing sponsor.
