Why does it cost more to sponsor a child through Compassion than similar child sponsorship organizations?
Compassion is a holistic child development ministry that focuses on the full development of the child. Because of that, we release children from poverty, not merely sustain them through it. Many organizations focus on only one aspect of poverty
Releasing children from poverty, not merely sustain them through it! This was it. I signed up.
There are TONS of kids needing sponsorship and you can browse and search for certain criteria. I, of course, couldn't make a decision so I'm letting Compassion choose for me and send one the the kids most in need. I got an e-mail right after signing up. I will be receiving the sponsorship packet in the mail within the next 15 days! I am so excited to see who, boy/girl/age/country, I will be paired with. I'll keep you posted.
After reading nearly all of Compassion website I can truly say that I am proud to be one of their sponsors. They are very creditable and child/Christ oriented. I encourage you to at least go take a look. There many ways to give. Even if it is a one time gift or your prayers.
