A safe place to play

Your sponsored child is known, loved and protected.

Nine-year-old Joshua loves playing football and dreams of becoming a policeman. Despite growing up in a slum community in Indonesia, there’s something that marks Joshua’s childhood apart to that of his parents.

Joshua has a safe space to play.

 

Joshua

 

For millions of children like Joshua, living in extreme poverty exposes them to all kinds of dangers. Abuse, forced labour, trafficking and prostitution are but a few. Poverty robs children of their dignity, their hopes and their dreams.

But, thanks to your support every Compassion child has a safe place where they can learn, develop and grow. Every week for at least 44 weeks of the year, your sponsored child attends a Compassion project where they are known, loved and protected.

This makes for a lot of fun …
