Where We Work

We do all of our work through partnerships with thousands of local churches in 25 countries around the world. We partner with churches and denominations in Africa, Asia, Central America and the Caribbean, and South America to provide children with the opportunity to rise above their circumstances and become all God has created them to be. These frontline church partners tailor our holistic child development model to the contextualized needs of the children in their communities, to best deliver the whole-life care that the children they serve most need.

Additional support for our frontline church partners comes from 14 global partner offices who work with us to release children from poverty in Jesus’ name. Together, we are the world’s leading authority in holistic child development through sponsorship.

What makes child sponsorship with Compassion unique?

Sponsoring a child with Compassion is the most cost-effective way to end extreme child poverty. It not only addresses a child’s immediate physical needs, it also builds self-esteem and self-respect. Although these are similarities across other child sponsorship programs, Compassion’s approach is unique because we are:

Christ-Centered

In response to God’s call to care for the poor, Compassion gives hope to the hopeless, meeting practical needs and sharing the good news about Jesus in a culturally relevant, unconditional way to all we serve.

Child-Focused

Our child sponsorship ministry connects one child with one sponsor to help the child achieve his or her God given potential. Sponsors write and receive letters, pray for and encourage their sponsored children and may even visit their children.

Church-Based

Every sponsored child is linked with a Christ-centered church in his or her community. Compassion partners with over 7,500 evangelical church partners in 25 countries around the world.
