A Story

Here is a story from Rwanda, about sponsorship and friendship. Like he says in the video, sponsorship affects the sponsor as well as the child.

Birthdays

Here is a video from Compassion that talks about birthdays.  Is it possible to sponsor a child on their birthday?  Yes!  At this link you can sponsor a child that is having a birthday today.  Can you sponsor a child that shares your birth date?  Absolutely.  At the same link notice that you can “search for a child” (on the right side) and even choose the date of their birth.  Many people sponsor a child for each of their own children, choosing children that share the exact same birth dates.  How cool is that?  Take a look at this great video:

Babies in Poverty

What is Compassion International doing to reach the most vulnerable children of all in the world — babies? Although our sponsorship program begins with older children, what are we doing to assure children live to an age where sponsorship can begin? Take a look at this amazing story:

Parents Dream

Do parents in developing countries have big dreams for their children?  Yes, of course they do!  But those dreams are not often realized.  Take a look at this video and you will see how important and real these dreams are, and also see the solution to bringing those dreams to fruition.

Four Alumni

This is a great video from Compassion International–detailing true stories of four formerly sponsored children.   Here you can see how very important it is to help unsponsored children such as these kids here.

Breaking the Cycle of Poverty

This film features what a difference vocational training makes for our sponsored children. This includes a variety of skills — plumbing, carpentry, cooking, sewing, welding, auto mechanics and technology — to name a few. Please enjoy hearing the wonderful story shared here.
