Who We Are

releasing children from poverty, in Jesus' name

Compassion is one of the world's leading child development and child advocacy organisations.

Our approach is a personal one. Working with the local church, we link a child living in poverty with a loving sponsor, like you. Each sponsor gives their child access to education, health checks and the care of a local church-based Compassion project. There's no quick fix to global poverty, but through our programmes, children's lives are being changed. We're impacting families, communities and whole nations.


Children are most vulnerable to the effects of poverty. Everything we do is about ensuring the children in our care are known and loved.


Through the local church, we demonstrate the love and hope of Christ in relevant and sensitive ways.


We partner with churches in 25 of the world’s poorest countries. These churches are able to meet the specific needs of their communities.

Our values

Because we're committed to the church, we value integrity, excellence, stewardship, dignity, dignity and discernment.
