To best serve children around the world, Compassion International has developed a Holistic Child Development Model that provides support for children of all ages through various programs, including the capstone Leadership Development Program. After students graduate from Compassion’s Child Sponsorship Program, the organization investigates the thousands of graduates to identify the young leaders and top performers who wish to continue academic and training pursuits. These children are given the opportunity to engage in university studies and Christian leadership training as participants in Compassion’s Leadership Development Program.
In addition to covering tuition costs, Compassion assigns students a personal sponsor, who provides crucial encouragement and guidance through letter writing. With this financial and emotional support, students are able to complete their studies and become business leaders, medical professionals, educators in their communities.
