I keep all of my sponsor’s letters in a shoebox my aunt helped me decorate so they will stay safe.

Children Waiting on a Sponsor

Compassion's entire ministry is centered on the one-on-one relationship between a sponsor and a child. At any given time, there are thousands of children waiting on a sponsor to change their lives. For these children waiting on a sponsor, they are waiting for so much more than a name. They are waiting for a person to demonstrate how incredibly precious and valuable they are.

While they are able to attend the child development center as soon as they are registered, children waiting on a sponsor are missing out on the most important aspect of child sponsorship ... the relationship between the sponsor and the child. This personal relationship is often the biggest thing that breaks the cycle of poverty in a child's life.

Many children living in poverty experience loneliness, self-doubt or discouragement. Oftentimes a sponsor, through prayer, letters and even visits is the most effective way to show these children just how valuable and loved they are. The one-on-one relationship with a sponsor fights the lies of poverty and speaks loudly to the child about their worth.

Why wait any longer? View photos of children waiting on a sponsor. Sponsor a child in need today through Compassion's child sponsorship ministry.
