It's #backtoschool  time - not only for you and your kids but for kids all around the world. Enjoy this small glimpse into the journeys to school – and backpacks – of three children our program serves in Kenya, the Philippines and India!

What you pack into your kiddo's pack as they head back to school might not be too different from that of a child living in the developing world.

We've all thought it: "Is this child real? Does my sponsorship work? Where is my money going?"

Nine alumni of Compassion's program discuss the results of our program on their lives and their favorite memories of growing up.

...Compassion children are real. I married one earlier this year on April 26th, in Hawassa (Ethiopia). She was sponsored to go to university, became an accountant, joined Compassion as a member of staff in Jima, and is now a project manager in Hawassa.

Humanly speaking, she is the love of my life. I am ex-military, but similarly, her testimony is phenomenal (praise to God), and if it were possible - I would give her a medal. She is beautiful in every way, and I will always be grateful to everyone who contributed to her upbringing.

Nowadays she is well known to the Compassion community in Ethiopia, and though we don't yet have children of our own, she is a mother herself - many times over, some of them now adults including graduates themselves.

May God bless you richly, both staff and children at Compassion!

You can be the link between waiting children and their new sponsors.

How can one life make a difference in the lives of three children living in extreme poverty?

This is the #business of #fairtrade and it makes a huge impact on those living in #poverty.
What does fair trade really mean and what does it take for a company to be committed to only using fair trade certified ingredients?

Sports and games are incredible important to kids all around the world.

In Burkina Faso, soccer, handball, cycling, and basketball are popular. In Colombia, soccer is the main sport.

What sport does your sponsor child like to play?

I am glad to be able to  sponsor "my child" in the DR and bring her close to Jesus

The difference between child sponsorship and child development is subtle ... but significant.

Child sponsorship is a word. Child development is a story. 
The difference between being a child sponsorship organization and a child development organization is subtle ... but significant.

For the world's most vulnerable children, life is not an opportunity to learn or grow, dream or play. It is a struggle for survival and safety. And with the prevalence of #humantrafficking, the risks grow even greater.

Sponsor a child and help prevent child trafficking before it starts.

A good infographic, which unfortunately gives the impression that trafficking is does NOT take place on a global basis -- trafficking of children and adults occurs in almost every major metro area, including the US and EU

it seems like a great organization but I am suspicious of it. my mom has been donating for years and always writing letters. the letters don't add up ever and her questions never get answered. I wonder if there even is a girl sometimes.
Response from the owner - 2 months ago
Hi Blair. Sorry that your mom has been having some issues with her letters. We know that it can be really tough and even frustrating to pour into the life of a child without getting much back. Has your mom tried underlining or highlighting her questions? This helps our staff make sure that the child is able to answer them. Sometimes the timeline of the kids receiving and writing letters gets messed up, too. They might be writing a letter when yours is en route. All that to say, if her child continues to write the same things in the letters and does not answer her questions, please let us know by emailing socialmedia@compassion.com and we can work more closely with her sponsored child to help resolve this issue.

I have supported a child in El Salvador for about 9 years now and have been very impressed by this organization. The letters and pictures of this child have come about 4 times a year. I send money for his birthday and receive a letter of what the local organization bought him which is usually clothes. I can assure others that this is a worthwhile ChristIan missional organization with high integrity. My only complaint is that I can't send more personal items to him and am limited to their regulations.
