Top Child Sponsorship FAQ’s

How long should my child sponsorship last?

Our Child Sponsorship Program offers you the opportunity to stay with a child for a number of years, usually through the school year in which the child reaches the age of 18 to 22 (varies by country).

While we hope that you will be able to continue your support of your sponsored child until he or she completes the program, we recognize that circumstances sometimes change. You may discontinue your child sponsorship at any time.

Please understand that a sponsored child's circumstances may change, too. For example, sometimes families move beyond the reach of our program and children no longer have the opportunity to participate.

We will inform you as quickly as possible if any such circumstance affects the child you sponsor, and we'll offer you the opportunity to sponsor another child in need of your help.

Sponsor a child today and transform despair into hope.

When you sponsor a child, you can exchange letters, photos and prayers. You can even choose to visit the child you sponsor.

You can change a child's life from one of hardship and loneliness to one of hope and meaning. You have the opportunity to literally bring the love of Christ to a child in need.

Compassion's ministry to children in poverty is unique. Our Child Sponsorship Program is:

  • Church Based. Compassion is the only child sponsorship organization that works exclusively with local evangelical churches in the developing world.
  • Christ Centered. Our ministry gives every child in our program the opportunity to hear about Jesus Christ.
  • Child Focused. Each child has one sponsor, someone like you, who exchanges letters, photos and prayers and provides necessities like food, health care and educational opportunities.

Sponsoring a child through Compassion allows you to witness a miracle firsthand, following your child's growth as as he or she is nurtured to health, educated and exposed to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

At Compassion, we say that nurturing a child, connecting that child to a local church and having someone like you in a child's life is the most strategic way to make a difference in the life of a child in need.

Change the life of a child in poverty. With your generous donation of only $38 a month, you can sponsor a child in poverty who will receive:

  • medical care
  • clean water and nutritional supplements
  • job skills training
  • mentoring and opportunities for personal development
  • the love and hope that only Christ can give

You may discontinue your child sponsorship at any time.

Each child deserves the hope of Jesus Christ. Will you give one child that blessing? Will you sponsor a child?

Give a child hope for the future and for all eternity. Sponsor a child today!
