What role does the Compassion staff play when serving the kids in our program? Whether it's a pat on the back or a tough discussion, the staff in each country are the ones who make the biggest difference in the lives of these kids.

Our Compassion alumni discuss their favorite memories of the incredible staff, mentors and leaders who gave so much of themselves for those in need in the community.

In its worst expression, #povertytourism is not just the exploitation of one group - the poor - it is the exploitation of two: those visiting and those visited.

This is a better way.

Go to this summer's hottest #Christian #music festivals - Light the Night, Icthus, Sonshine, Ignite, and many more - for free.
Compassion volunteers band together in community to talk to potential sponsors, listen to stories, and share their hearts. It’s truly a family experience.

Mercy wants to be a social worker when she grows up.

But in #Uganda, where she lives, 40% of girls are married before they turn 18.

Education and empowerment of young girls is paramount in the fight to end #childmarriage.

You cannot separate #water and #hygiene.

They are both crucial to sustainable #healthcare.
When providing clean water to communities in Africa, the conversation can't stop there. Sanitation education is crucial to sustainable health care.

What does #poverty mean to those who are #poor?
Poverty is an opportunity to free a child from a life sentenced to dependence, scarcity and marginalization. Hand a child the key to freedom. Sponsor a child today.

Today we launch a summer conversation series with our Compassion alumni.

See how one common item (you probably have a few of them in your house) made a big difference to them growing up.

At the heart of International #DayoftheAfricanChild is a beautiful message of celebration and awareness for some of the most vulnerable in our world. It also presents an opportunity to focus on the work of all people committed to the rights of children on the continent.

For the International Day of the African Child, take a photo journey into what African childhood can look like. One filled with the beauty of simplicity.

Every kid deserves a childhood of freedom. But 150 million kids in developing countries are robbed of that freedom. Check out this infographic to learn more about child labor.

Here are some great ideas on how to encourage the child you sponsor to dream bigger than their circumstances in your next #compassionletter.

We recently got to spend an evening with one of the hottest bands on the planet at one of the greatest concert venues in America.

Come relive the night with For King and Country at the #RymanAuditorium in #Nashville.
On Friday, May 22, Grammy-award winners For King and Country wrapped up their "You Matter" tour in Nashville, TN at the Ryman Auditorium. Here are some of the best of the best pics from the night.

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.

Amazing, credible Christian child development non profit organization working in 26 countries. Overflowing with talented friendly people. Interning here in the summer of 2014 was life-changing!

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 - in the last week
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.
