More powerful than poverty is the hope of Jesus, the care of a local church, and the encouragement of you: a loving sponsor.

Why Compassion?

Our Child Sponsorship Program doesn't just address children's physical needs, but the needs of their heart, mind and soul. Here's how we're different.



Jesus is at the heart of what we do. Each of the 1.8 million children in our program has the chance to hear the life-changing message of Jesus' love. We believe Jesus is the ultimate source of hope.



Our program meets the specific needs of each child. When you become a sponsor, you're personally connected with a boy or girl who will know your name and treasure the thought you care about them.



Our program is run entirely by local Christian churches in Africa, Asia, Latin America. Why? Local churches are experts on their community's needs. We equip them to help children escape poverty.
