Compassion International  is an evangelical, Christian child development ministry that exists to release children from poverty in Jesus name. With programs now in 26 countries, Compassion works through the local church to equip children for the future by providing for their spiritual, physical, economic and social needs.

Compassion has distinctives they call the Four C's:

·         Christ-centered
·         Child-focused
·         Church-based
·         Committed to integrity

At all levels, Compassion seeks holistic child development. Their programs offer educational opportunities, health care, health-related instruction, supplemental nutrition, life-skills training and opportunities to hear and respond to the gospel. One of the things I love the most about Compassion is its ability to offer so many ways to partner with them in releasing children from poverty in Jesus name. It is known for its child sponsorship program and it is the thrust of Compassions mission and ministry but it is so much more. Just take a look!
