What our Sponsors are Saying:

Yes, I would recommend Compassion to a friend.

Inspiring & Christ-Centered Mission I have only been sponsoring through Compassion for less than a year and already I talk to as many people as I can about getting involved with this company. I am definitely assured that God is working through this company. It seems like almost every time I'm having a bad day or I just need an energy boost, God works it out that I receive a letter from one of my beloved sponsor kids right on that day that boosts my spirits right up! I encourage everyone to get involved with this company!

Blessed to partner with Compassion! This year marks 10 years of my wife and I partnering with Compassion. Taking the step to sponsor a child has completely changed our lives! God is doing great things through this amazing organization. When we decided to sponsor a child, our thoughts were for the life we would help change in the name of Jesus. Never did we consider the change that would occur in our own lives through loving in His little ones. I am here to testify that we will be Compassion sponsors until the Lord calls us home!

One of the best decisions I've made! I've been a sponsor for 6 years. My 1st child is a boy in India. It's been a joy to receive his letters, drawing, photos, and to watch him grow into a young man. He graduated high school and is attending a vocational school to learn a trade. I'm so proud of him! I got to meet him and visit his school and home several years ago. What I saw vastly exceeded my expectations, and cemented my belief that this program transforms children's lives. I started my 2nd sponsorship this year!

Compassion is the best! I began sponsoring through Compassion 21 years ago, and have since sponsored and corresponded with 19 outstanding girls and boys in 8 different countries. I have had the pleasure of visiting seven of them, and have seen four of them graduate. Three went on to college. When I sponsored my first child, I wanted to be a blessing to her. After many letters, I got to visit Ericelda in Guatemala. It was clear to me, that she was more of a blessing to me than I could ever be to her.

Best Decision Ever! God has used Compassion in my life in a mighty way! I sponsor three girls from Bolivia, Indonesia, and Nicaragua. They are a huge blessing in my life! I love them so dearly and love writing to them and receiving letters from them.

Sponsorship is Awesome! We started out sponsoring just one child and after 3 years our hearts ached to add another child. It brings such joy to us when we receive letters from them telling us what they do each day. We look forward to the yearly pictures we receive and if we are able, God willing, we hope to sponsor a 3rd child. We love Compassion; they do wonderful work.

Best Experience I started sponsoring a boy from Tanzania in 2007 after a presentation at a youth conference, I was in 10th grade at the time. I received 12-14 letters a year from him and i really got to know him and his family. I was heartbroken when he left the program but I continued doing the correspondent sponsorship with other kids and I loved being able to encourage these kids without having the funds to do so. I just recently began financially sponsoring another child from Mexico and i'm so happy i did.

Sponsor for 3+ years I have been sponsoring a little girl in Columbia for three years now. She is the daughter I never had. I love teaching her about the United States and in return I enjoy learning about Columbia. I met another sponsor from my state who visited her sponsored child in Columbia and she was able to share so much with me, including pictures. She spoke very highly of the Compassion program there.

PODEMOS CAMBIAR AL MUNDO Es increíble la oportunidad de poder ser parte de este gran ministerio , cuando pienso en la gran pobreza del mundo que nos rodea y las grandes oportunidades que tenemos nosotros al vivir , creo y me siento movido a que por lo menos ayudemos a aquellos que mas lo necesitan !!

BEST decision! I am 15 years old and started sponsoring in August. I am sooooo in love with Compassion that I now sponsor 3 girls from India, and on the way to having 15 correspondent kids. I am also an advocate now! Sponsoring is one of the best decisions!!!

Amazing I have been sponsoring for 2 years a boy from Ethiopia and recently a girl from Bolivia. The interaction through letters with the children is incredible watching them grow and learning about Jesus is just amazing. If you want a great place to help children look no further

Best Decision EVER I went to an event with my mom and Compassion was there. I'm only 16 so I was just kind of zoning out during the part where they spoke because I thought there was no way I could support a child. That night, Compassion workers came up and spoke again. This time I felt a little tug in my heart and I left that day supporting a boy in Uganda named Rogers. I've gotten a letter now and pictures. Rogers has brought me so much joy and I couldn't be happier to know he's safe and learning about God!

Very Rewarding I have been a sponsor for five years. I enjoy corresponding with the children, and watching them grow into wonderful people. They are eager to find out about me and my husband, and to pray for us. They ask for prayer when they need it. They are eager to do good in life, and blossom with encouragement. Electronic email has made it so fun and simple to write letters. I send two or three times more letters now, and it makes it simple to send some of the basic information to more than one child.

Makes a difference I have written before, I am writing again as I can't say enough about the Compassion program, we have several sponsored as well as correspondence children. Their letters are so cheerful despite their poverty and family issues, their love shines through their letters. It is wonderful to hear what they achieve at school and also that they are praying for us. One of our boys said he wanted to drop out of school but due to my encouragement he stayed in, he is now in college with 2 years to go!

So rewarding! In the last 3 years of sponsoring my child, I have watched him grow and develop. I have heard him confess that Jesus is his hero. I have come to understand that dreams are realized through this program. Relationships are built and a bond is created between sponsee and sponsor. I love my sponsored child so much and hope only the best for him. If I could sponsor 1000 children, I would do it today.

Heart Transforming Letter writing is one of the best things about Compassion. When you write your child, you start looking through the lens of his/her life and situation. What's important? What can they relate to? It's a soul exercise, because you are being trained to see things God's way. That works out in your own life, in how you spend your money and time. Some things just seem like such a waste. Instead, when you send some money for a birthday or family gift, you see how FAR it goes overseas.

Best Investment of My Life! When I say investment, I do not mean just monitarily. Investing in a sponsored child's life and being God's light into their life is definitely worth it to me. I am also a correspondent sponsor for sponsored children who do not receive letters from their sponsors, and I love writing them with encouragement in addition to my own sponsored children!

I LOVE my Compassion Kids! I started with one precious child and it grew, and grew, and grew! Between sponsorships and corresponding I am so blessed to have 22 children to love! (8 personally sponsored). Going to see another one in June! Oh the joy God gives me, and the relationships we build are amazing! I wish every one could sponsor at least one child to know how it feels!

God's work in action I love hearing from my child, she is such a blessing to me and my family. Knowing I can help in some way to improve the life of a child is what Love is all about.

Love Compassion I have had a wonderful experience with Compassion. I have sponsored a child for over 3 years now and everyone is so sweet and helpful. I'm blessed to be a part of this organization.

Best Decision I Ever Made By sponsoring a child through Compassion I have received blessings I never expected and found a personal way to intervene in his life, tell him he is loved, and help him dig his way out of this poverty that threatens his life every day. I write to him, and I get letters back from him. This entire journey with my sponsored child has given me more personal growth, introspection, and blessings than I ever imagined possible.

When God Provided, He Changed My Life I'm 16 years old and as of next month I will have sponsored for one year. I was at a youth event, and I wasn't sure if I'd have the money every month. My youth pastor said he'd help. I didn't want to be choosy of the child I picked, but when I saw her picture, I knew that she was the one. Since then I've received 3 letters. She just turned 12 and I recently saw a new picture. She gets more beautiful every day. When God provided the opportunity to sponsor my "little sister", He changed my life...

My Other Grandchildren I am a grandmother with six grandchildren. My sponsored children with Compassion are my other grandchildren. They are part of my family. I am part of their lives. I am there for them in the good and bad times. I have heard about the earthquake and diseases in Haiti and the festivals in Thailand. I encourage them, pray for them, and love them. Being a sponsor with Compassion is a very rewarding experience.
