What Specifically are we Doing?

Step #2

There are several future opportunities for Compassion and Vineyard for partnership in Kenya, but the first will be to begin sponsoring individual children living in extreme poverty. Here's how Compassion does this ...

We Release Children From Poverty in Jesus' Name

That is our mission, which we work to achieve through a holistic approach to child development. We carefully blend physical, social, economic and spiritual care together…in Jesus' name.

We Help Develop Children Into All God Intends Them To Be

Child development equips children today with skills to succeed tomorrow. Holistic child development provides opportunities that encourage the healthy development of all aspects of a child — spiritually, physically, socially, emotionally, and even economically — early and throughout life.

Holistic child development means we begin assisting a child in poverty, in some cases, when the child is still in the womb, and it means we go all the way through young adulthood with the child.

Holistic child development requires a long-term approach and goes beyond simple involvement in the life of a child. It involves long-term dedication and perseverance, and it changes as a child’s needs change. Holistic child development is tailored to a child's age, gender, health, culture and family situation.

We Do All of Our Work Through Local Churches

We work with thousands of local churches around the world, and each church partner tailors our holistic child development model to the contextualized needs of the children in its community, to best deliver the whole-life care the children need.

We work primarily through child sponsorship, but also have specific initiatives to help babies and mothers, to develop future leaders, and to meet critical needs.
