Anyone who has read my blog before is aware that my husband and I sponsor a number of children through Compassion International. Compassion exists to release children from poverty in Jesus' name, through a holistic approach to child development.
Child sponsorship through Compassion costs $38/month, providing children the opportunity to grow spiritually, physically, economically, and socially/emotionally. Tuition assistance is often provided for children whose parents cannot afford to send their child to school. Medical and dental care are provided for the child through annual check-ups; special needs are met, wherever possible. Other benefits also apply, according to need, region or country, and are too numerous to list.
Depending on region and country, funding and availability, Complementary Interventions include malaria intervention; HIV/AIDS education and treatment; safe drinking water, and much more. Other core programs are the Child Survival Program and Leadership Development Program.
In partnership with local evangelical churches and utilizing Compassion's Christ-centered, Child-focused, Church-based ("3 C's") approach, project staff members work to guide the children into becoming the fulfilled, adult Christian women and men they are meant to be, each one following the path God has designed for them.
If you would like to sponsor a child through Compassion, you can click on any of the three widgets in the side columns of my blog, or set your own parameters (age, region/country, gender, and more). Your prayers, letters and encouragement will do more for your child than you can ever imagine. Leave a comment if you have any questions.
