Nachi, a grandmother in Kenya, is a courageous woman. Most of her work is strenuous and worry steals her sleep at night. But she fears not for herself but for Collins, her beloved grandson whom she cares for after the death of his parents.

When we put our love into action, it results in a story changed.

In Kenya, Nachi's and her grandson Collins' story was defined by unimaginable hardship and grief. See how their story changed to one defined by hope.

Mutabazi desired what we all want: freedom, a place to call home and the stability of a loving family. While his parents never had the opportunity to provide these things for him, his local church and his sponsor were able to step in and make sure he was still known, loved and protected and provide him with opportunities to achieve his dreams. 
A tragedy at infancy plunged Mutabazi into a life as an orphan filled with malnourishment, child labor and fear that his desires might never be fulfilled.

Poverty robs children of hope. Hope that tomorrow can be different than today.

A life that is not poured out fully and wholly for others can be lonely and empty.

Yesterday I had a meal with Esther.Getting to her was a little bit difficult. It took a plane ride and a very rocky bus ride.We stepped off the van and I heard. Nothing. Like a pin dropped onto a map, our feet hit the dirt. Esther lives in the south of Cochabamba with her grandmother and…

Many define the poor by their lack of financial resources. While that is true, it is an oversimplification of all the poor lack. When you look at how the Bible defines "poverty," you see that we have much in common with the poor ... and that we are all truly in poverty. #bible #poverty
Many people and organizations view poverty in economic terms. How does this description align with Scripture? How does the Bible define poverty?

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.

I just sponsored a little girl from Kenya through Compassion and their costumer service is great! It was so easy and all my questions were answered. It took less than 15 minutes from start to finish. Please consider sponsoring through Compassion International today!

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 - a year 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.
