Child Sponsorship Explained
Compassion projects are located in the building facilities of a local church. All ministry is done as an extension of the local church, maximizing the church building and classrooms throughout the week, and helping the local church be the center of ministry for the communtiy in each area.
When a child is sponsored, they are able to come to the project three days a week, receiving one meal each visit so that they have at least three meals per week for free - a financial blessing to the poor families. Then they receive education and Christian discipleship as each project focuses on four areas of the child's development - Health, Spiritual, Social/Emotional, and Cognitive (Education).
