Truly an amazing organization!! I love the fact that almost every penny you give goes for the child's development. I love my child so much!! She has been a blessing to me in so many ways. God is working in her life and mine. It is so amazing to watch this young girl grow up in a safe and family oriented pace, amongst the cruel and violent world where she is from. I hope that you can help and sponsor a child. If you are reading these reviews, you are thinking about it. JUST DO IT!!

Rakelane I sponsor my child so that he and his family can hear the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST and the way to heaven. Education no matter how good it is will NOT get a person in to heaven.

Love & Legit I have always been a skeptic but before I became a sponsor I knew people who sponsored through Compassion. They were really involved and had even visited their sponsor child overseas. Also my youth pastor met a grown woman who had been a Compassion sponsor child and she told him how the program changed her life. So several people I knew personally and trusted had these encounters. Their endorsement helped me decide to sponsor and I hope my endorsement will help others likewise. This is legitimate.

Changing the World, One Child at Time I started sponsoring in 2002. At the time I wasn't living in Colorado and had no idea that 10 years later I would start working at Compassion. I thought Compassion was awesome before I started working here. Now that I have worked here for over 4 years, I am even more impressed than I was before. God is working through Compassion International to further His Kingdom. I've visited churches and children in Ecuador and I've seen first hand the positive impact they are having.

Blessing A wonderful Christian organisation. I have been sponsoring a little boy in Indonesia for a year now. It gives great joy to know that he and his family are being blessed by this work.

SHARING GOD'S LOVE I have been a sponsor for a child in Togo Africa and is such a blessing! I have heard from my sponsored child as soon as I began writing to him, and with the new computer website, the letters get sent so much quicker...we are able to respond back to questions and send photos on line. It is a wonderful experience, and has been such a blessing, as I hear how he is doing and the things he is learning about God. My prayer is that more people would sponsor this year! Go for it!

Compassion is a Blessing! We started sponsoring several years ago, our finances were tight and we only had 2 biological daughters. In the years since, God has honored our sacrifice and blessed us & our finances immensely! We are now the very proud parents of 8 children (2 biological, 4 adopted & 2 foster-to-adopt), we are now sponsoring 12 children & I now work with troubled teenage boys in a full-time ministry job! I would highly recommend Compassion sponsorship to everyone! God will bless you for it!

Sponsorship will change your life We have been sponsoring a child from India since 2012. It has been an amazing experience working with Compassion. Their customer service is awesome and they keep me updated on his progress with letters and emails. I love that I can write letters and give him gifts online. It is amazing how much he has changed in the four years we have been sponsoring him. He went from a child that looked so sad to a child with a twinkle in his eye that only comes from knowing and loving the Lord!

Poor Communication & Patent Answers I started sponsoring a child 2 years ago. During that time I asked several times what gifts my child received for her birthday and Christmas and never received an answer. My child moved out of the area and I received a new child with the same lack of communication. I'm sure Compassion International does great work but in my case I don't feel comfortable giving money and not knowing if or what my child is receiving. I'm done sponsoring. I will do it locally where I know what my child is receiving firs

Giving Hope and Love I love what Compassion is all about. I absolutely love the connection I have with my sponsor child. I want to meet my precious Angel one day. It's not expensive and it hurts me to see that children are suffering and I wish I can be able to help them all. I love what Compassion does, prayer is a powerful tool, by sponsoring and connecting with my child, they give me hope, faith and love. It's a rewarding experience.

Love this Organization! I have absolutely loved the experience of sponsoring a child. There's nothing quit as rewarding as forming a relationship with your sponsor child. I have loved getting to know the little girl I sponsor and being able to be a part of her life. I wanted to sponsor a child in order to be a blessing in someone else's life, but she has ended up being more of a blessing to me than I could ever imagine!

This has CHANGED my life! Compassion has really changed my life! I love the Lord, and He spoke to me that I should sponsor a little girl in the Philippines. Now I have been sponsoring her for almost a year, and just started to write to another girl in Ethiopia. I thank Compassion and my church's Compassion Sunday. I highly recommend this program!

What does it mean to know God? Today, I celebrate my 1st year since I met my girl from Nicaragua whom I dearly love like my own child, and God has blessed me with 2 more children since then.Much has been learned from my sponsorship experiences and above all is the "Knowledge of God".God can actually suffer when His children suffer and He is exhorting us to identify ourselves with His concern.Our only boast ought to be our knowledge of Him by exercising "kindness, justice and righteousness on earth"(Jeremiah9:23~24).

So religious! I thought this was an organization that helped kids get on their feet and learn some life skills, but it seems they are most concerned about forcing Jesus and Christianity down the kids throats. I recently wanted to add another child to my sponsorship and asked if he would be able to attend school with the monthly gift. Compassion said that was not guaranteed, but of course church activities were. I find the gift of a real education more important than memorizing Bible verses. Disappointing.

Fantastic Organization Compassion is such an amazing organization that cares about the children and families they are working with, both the sponsored and the sponsors. I have been sponsoring children through Compassion since high school over 12 years ago. In that time, I've had financial trouble and they worked with me to ensure the child I sponsored would be taken care of. They are also very good at keeping sponsors informed when there are issues at the centers about what is being done to fix it. Highly recommended!

Very Good I have sponsored a child in Uganda for about 8-9 years now. It has been amazing!

Great experience for all involved! The Compassion Project is an amazing organisation. My family and I have wrote to two twin sisters who live in Kenya. We enjoy writing and receiving letters. I would highly recommend sponsoring a child .

I love this organization I have sponsored a girl in El Salvador for 11 years. Last year I was blessed to meet her and her mother and the lady who works at the center where she attends. I was on a mission trip and was based about 1 1/2 hours from where they live. It was a privilege to meet them all. They were so humble and gracious and appreciative of what I have sent over the years. The center worker had a binder showing how all the money I sent has been used for her. She is a young lady now, aged out of the program.

Great ministry! This is a great ministry. I receive letters from her & can see her growing in Christ. I'd like to debunk some low reviews for you. Compassion never says that the child receives the money. The Center gets the money and they use it to bless the child. HOWEVER...if you send a gift of money the family does get it. My child wrote me a letter thanking me for the money and telling me what a timely blessing it was, she then listed the items she was able to get, incl. food, clothing and candy.

I am praying if I should continue After 7 years, sponsoring 6 children from various countries: Bolivia, Ethiopia, and Ghana.Younger, older, girls, boys: their needs are similar but the children are each unique.More changes made to policy. I can no longer send bought cards or my 3x5 scripture cards that I personally write out and pray over. I have asked each child to keep the 3x5 scripture cards and in future years look back and reread them. Now they only scan and send on.This takes away the personal touch I add plus my prayers.

Showing Compassion Through Christ! The reason for sponsoring two children is to help them become better men and women through Christ, by receiving education, medical checkups, and spiritual guidance. My wife and I want to make a difference and we hope that the children we sponsored will be appreciative of the support they are receiving. We hope that the men and women Jesus puts in front of them will be able to positively affect their lives in such a way that when they are older they also want to help others in need. God Bless!
