Every child, no matter their circumstances, deserves the opportunity to dream about a bright future. For kids growing up in extreme poverty, this isn’t always the case. They may never aspire beyond their circumstances because they’ve never been shown the way or encouraged to pursue big dreams. Where you are born does not determine your destiny, and through sponsorship, you can come alongside them to mentor, share encouraging letters and pray for them. Partner with us to release a child from poverty in Jesus’ name, and you help make those dreams a reality.

LifeWay and Compassion International are thrilled to be partnering in ministry together through live events, continuing the legacy of sponsoring nearly 20,000 children since our partnership’s inception. We have a shared goal of working alongside the local church to help people grow in their faith, and this is exactly what Compassion does in 25 countries around the world. Compassion ensures children are able to get an education, have medical care, nutrition, emotional support, discipleship, and the love and care of local believers. Sponsors are connected in a 1-on-1 relationship, and through the work of Compassion, over 2 million children are in the program worldwide. You can join us in this exciting gospel work, changing the life of a child forever by providing lifegiving support.

“Compassion does such a wonderful job loving and caring for thousands of children around the world, and they allow people like you and me to do the same. I gladly and gratefully give to my sponsor kiddos. They are worth it. They will have opportunities not possible without my humble offering.”

Start Sponsoring a Child Today!

Your tax-deductible contribution of just $38 a month connects a child living in poverty with a loving, church-driven Child Sponsorship Program.

Your support provides:

  • Medical checkups, which often save lives
  • Nutritious food
  • Health and hygiene training
  • Educational assistance
  • Access to special services like surgeries and disaster relief
  • Mentoring to help children discover their incredible value as God’s children
  • Most important of all, your sponsored child will hear about Jesus Christ and be encouraged to develop a lifelong relationship with God. Just imagine how exciting it will be when one day you get to heaven and your sponsored child is there with you because you chose to sponsor him or her.

When you sponsor a child, you'll receive your child's photo, personal story and a child sponsorship packet by mail in approximately 10 days.

When children find out they've been sponsored, the joy they feel is indescribable. Just knowing that someone across the globe cares means more than you can imagine. Sponsoring a child in need will profoundly change the future for your child, and will change your own life as well.
