Compassion International's mission is to release children from poverty in Jesus' name. Through a holistic approach to child development, we blend physical, social, economic and spiritual care together. We do all of our work through partnerships with local, evangelical Christian churches. We primarily work though child sponsorship, with over two million children currently sponsored. In summary, Compassion is Christ-centered, church-based and child-focused. If you're interested, keep reading and apply below!
