Compassion Child Sponsorship 

WHO WE ARE – RELEASING CHILDREN FROM POVERTY, IN JESUS' NAME
Compassion is one of the world's leading child development and child advocacy organisations. 

Our approach is a personal one. Working with the local church, we link a child living in poverty with a loving sponsor, like you. Each sponsor gives their child access to education, health checks and the care of a local church-based Compassion project. There's no quick fix to global poverty, but through our programmes, children's lives are being changed. We're impacting families, communities and whole nations.

 

CHILD-FOCUSED

Children are most vulnerable to the effects of poverty. Everything we do is about ensuring the children in our care are known, loved and protected. 
CHRIST-CENTRED
Through our projects, we demonstrate the love and hope of Christ in a relevant and sensitive ways. 
CHURCH-BASED
We partner with churches in 26 of the world’s poorest countries. These churches are able to meet the specific needs of their communities.
OUR VALUES
Because we're committed to the church, we value integrity, excellence, stewardship and dignity.
