RELEASING CHILDREN FROM POVERTY, IN JESUS’ NAME
Compassion is one of the world’s leading child development and child advocacy organisations.
Compassions approach is a personal one. Working with the local church, they link a child living in poverty with a loving sponsor. 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 their programmes, children’s lives are being changed. Compassion have impacting families, communities and whole nations.
HELPING CHILDREN ESCAPE POVERTY

Compassion reach the most vulnerable children even before they have been born.

CHILD SPONSORSHIP PROGRAMME
Developing, discipling and equipping children for life.
Linking children living in absolute poverty with a caring sponsor like you.
As a sponsor, you give your child the chance to attend school and a church-based Compassion project. At the project, you provide your sponsored child with nutritious food, health check-ups, Biblical teaching and additional life-skills. You give them a safe-haven where they are known, loved and protected. Independent research shows that this programme is life-changing. Compared to their peers, Compassion-sponsored children are more likely to stay in school for longer, have salaried jobs and be leaders in their communities and churches.
What’s more, through your sponsorship, you’ll encourage your child through your letters and prayers. You can make a real difference by helping a child in poverty to believe in themselves.
