Compassion International is a faith-based charity that partners with churches in dozens of countries to serve children in severely underprivileged communities. Sponsorship through Compassion International has an incredible impact on a child's life. Sponsored children are more likely to stay in school, and they have access to hours of safe programs and activities. When they grow older, these children are more likely to pursue higher education, graduate from college, and find white collar, salaried employment.
Compassion International’s local partners also give these children spiritual guidance by spreading the word of God to children in need to give them hope and comfort. Sponsored children receive immediate tangible benefits, as well. They have access to nutritional supplements and medical care to help them fight malnutrition and disease.
