When you sponsor a child with Compassion International, you help equip a child in extreme poverty with the skills and opportunities they need to become self-sufficient and fulfilled adults. Your sponsored child will be paired with a local church where staff and volunteers will encourage healthy development as they grow. Through child sponsorship, that boy or girl will receive personal care and opportunities they would otherwise not have access to. Examples include medical checkups, malnutrition monitoring and care, education assistance, and key life skills training. And most importantly, sponsoring a child gives them an opportunity to encounter the gospel while seeing the truth of the good news in action. As a holistic child development ministry, we focus on the full health of the child. Many organizations focus on combating single factors like economic disparity and scarcity, but we care for children mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Because of that, we don’t just sustain a child through an impoverished circumstance: We work to release them from it. We’re set apart from other organizations through our focus on Christ, our work done exclusively in partnership with local churches and our focus on children and their holistic, sustainable development.
