A personal meeting is a deeply significant event. A child in poverty struggles with a deep-seated belief that he or she is insignificant, powerless and hopeless – a belief that perpetuates a poverty of spirit. Nothing says, “You are special, valued, significant and powerful” like a visit from a child’s sponsor – it is a life-changing event! The surprise is that the sponsor often feels the same message from his or her Compassion child – this interaction is nothing short of a truly sacred encounter. We encourage you to read the stories of other sponsors who have met their children on our Why Custom Visits page.
