When you work solely through local churches around the world, and you're dedicated to the long-term success of developing children, the choice of churches to work with is unbelievably important. Here's a peek behind the curtain of how we decide which churches to partner with.

The process by which Compassion's church partners are decided is complex for a reason. Here's one example of how it's done from the Philippines.

As our modern-day water cooler, social media can be a powerful tool where hearts can be moved and lives can be changed. But how can we turn our sympathy and empathy into more than just a like or share? How do we use social media well for something we’re passionate about? #Slacktivist #Slacktivism

Before you post, re-tweet or change profile pictures in reaction to news, consider these ideas on how to take the "slacker" out of social media slacktivist.

The church around the world needs each other in order to be the full body of Christ. By having relationships with those who trust God quite literally for their “daily bread” changes our perspectives on what Jesus means by “your kingdom come on earth, as it is in heaven.”

What animals are you most afraid of? Chances are the #mosquito isn't even on your list. But for millions of people around the world in danger of diseases like #malaria, it is. #WorldMalariaDay
Responsible for hundreds of thousands more deaths than any other animal or human, it's easy to see why this tiny pest could be the most hated creature.

Kids want to make an impact but often times they just don’t know how. See how one church made a big difference using gift cards.

How can one youth group make a difference in the lives of children in poverty simply by collecting one gift card at a time?

Isn't it great that we get to amplify the message that kids matter and boost the tally of positive words they hear through our letters? #compassionletter

"Sticks and stones my break my bones, but words will always help me." What powerful words are you going to share in your next #compassionletter?

When one after another after another tragedy unfolds before our eyes, we begin to feel numb. We begin to disengage. We begin to zone out and glaze over when one more instance of human suffering is brought before us. How do we care for a world that overwhelms us with its needs?

When one tragedy after another unfolds before our eyes, we begin to feel numb. We begin to disengage. How can we prevent compassion fatigue?

We are bombarded all day long with marketing messages promising we will be happier and more satisfied if we accumulate more and more possessions. But it’s not true. If accumulating things brought lasting happiness, don’t you think we would have found it by now?
Little Julia's giving heart reframed what it meant to be generous in her family. What can these six benefits of generosity mean for you and your family?
