What We Do

Helping children escape poverty

We're passionate about giving children the opportunity to escape from poverty and live life to the full! In partnership with local churches across the world, we meet children's complete needs within the context of their local communities.


Rescuing, nurturing and discipling little ones.

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

We provide antenatal care for vulnerable mothers, ensure children are vaccinated against deadly diseases and give mothers the skills they need to earn a living. In partnership with local churches, we give children the very best possible start in life.

Help babies survive



Developing, discipling and equipping children for life.

We link 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 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.

Change a life by sponsoring a child



Meeting critical needs.

Children in poverty have vast and complex needs. Our RESPOND Initiative complements the work of our Child Survival and Child Sponsorship Programmes by taking action in emergency situations and protecting our children in the long-term.

Through RESPOND, we're able to provide safe drinking water for children, distribute malaria nets, fund life-saving surgery, set up programmes to prevent malnutrition and provide emergency relief after a disaster.
