Our response to poverty is different.

Our focus is one child at a time. We build long-term relationships between children and their local church family.

Independent research confirms our approach works... and continues to work in a child's life long after they have completed our program.

Most importantly, every child gets the chance to hear and respond to the gospel message and discover God’s incredible love for them.

Through Compassion’s programs, children are supported through every stage of life, and are equipped to bring lasting change to their families and communities.

Christ centred. Child focused. Church based.


  • Christ Centred

    Christ Centred

    In response to God’s call Compassion gives hope to the hopeless, spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ in a culturally relevant, non-coercive way.

    While Compassion is a distinctly Christian organisation, we assist children and their families living in poverty regardless of their beliefs, gender or background.

    Child Focused

    Children are the hardest hit by poverty, the least able to change their circumstances, and at the heart of Jesus’ ministry.

    We address the holistic needs of the individual child so that they can become responsible and fulfilled Christian adults, equipped to change their communities.

    Programs are delivered in partnership with local churches in developing countries.

    These local congregations can best identify the specific needs of children in their community, able to adapt our programs to bring change to their communities.

"My family and I are passionate about the work of Compassion and helping the poor. Recently we visited our sponsored children and it showed us the heartbreak of poverty and the hope brought through Compassion."

“Our family has a connection with the sponsored kids and feel that we have been able to contribute to their physical and spiritual needs as a family. This hasn’t been a conceptual or generalised contribution either; we’ve been able to pray for a name and a child and look at their photo.”

“As an ambassador to Compassion I want people to understand that a relatively small donation can make a big difference to a child’s life.”

"The Sowers Group feel privileged to be ambassadors for Compassion because we lived it. We were sponsored by a Compassion supporter as boys in Africa, and we know that it has changed our lives. It works and we pray it will save many more children in the future from a life of poverty."

“I love the thought that the music I play or create, or the shows that I play, can count towards something bigger. Compassion is an organisation that is bringing hope to so many kids and families overseas, and I am really excited to be able to support what they are doing through the music that I play.”
