Sponsor a Child in Kenya

When you sponsor any of the Kenyan children pictured here, you set them on a life-changing path.
A Quick Look at Kenya
The Republic of Kenya is located in eastern Africa. Its population has tripled over the past 30 years, leading to increasing pressure on natural resources, a widening income gap and rising poverty.

  • More than half of the country's 37.9 million people are poor.
  • Life expectancy has lowered to 56 years, from 59 years in 1989.
  • HIV and AIDS have left many orphans and female-headed households, making them even more vulnerable to poverty.
  • About 58 percent of the population survive on less than U.S.$2 a day.

When you sponsor a child, you open up a whole new world of possibilities for that child. For only $38 a month, you can help a Kenyan child experience a life changed forever through Compassion. Your sponsored child will receive:

  • nutritional food supplements
  • health care and clean water
  • opportunities to learn job skills
  • a chance for safe recreation in a church-based environment
  • teaching about Jesus and encouragement to develop a lifelong relationship with God

The greatest gift you can give a child is your time! Just as you will have the opportunity to set aside some time to write your sponsored child, he or she will also take time to write to you and pray for you.

It's been nine years since I first traveled with Compassion to Uganda, and I continue to be moved by the ways Compassion works in and through local churches all over the world. This is not a model where kids are cared for by an ever-changing rotation of folks; this is a model where, as a result of sponsorships by people like you or me, kids are connected to a local church in their communities. Their physical, emotional, educational, and spiritual needs are met by a local body of believers who are committed to being the hands and feet of Jesus. We're not just talking about sponsorship; we're talking about discipleship. What a gift. What a joy.
