What is a Compassion child development centre?

Updated Wednesday 10 February, 2016

Our Child Survival Programs and Child Sponsorship Programs around the world are delivered through local child development centres.

Each centre:

  • Meets regularly
  • Uses local church facilities
  • Provides programmed activities for registered and sponsored children
  • Has a committee which provides local accountability and support
  • Has a director employed by the church to manage the day-to-day activities
  • Employs staff and volunteers selected by the local church
  • Operates under Compassion International's carefully monitored standards and guidelines
  • Provides reasonable levels of safety for children relative to the realities of the surrounding community
