Compassion is an international Christian child development and child advocacy ministry committed to working in partnership with local churches around the world to foster the spiritual, economic, social, physical and emotional development of children living in extreme poverty in over 26 developing countries.
Compassion’s holistic child development programs are unique in being delivered in partnership with local churches in developing countries. These local congregations can best identify the specific needs of children in their community and are able to contextualise the programs to drive change in their own community.
Through Compassion’s programs, children are supported through every stage of life, and are equipped to bring lasting change to their families and communities. While Compassion is a distinctly Christian organisation, they assist children and their families living in poverty regardless of their beliefs, gender or background.
