If you’re not currently experiencing poverty and are […]

In the many different seasons of my life, navigating my Asian identity has looked different as I’ve also fit the pieces together of my identity as a woman, Canadian, writer, daughter… and ultimately as a follower of Jesus.

Known, loved and connected: This is the story of sponsorship

I remember when I read that first letter from Cecile. Her words were scribbled across the paper as though the page could not contain all the joy she wanted to share with her new family across the world. At the end of that letter was attached a photo of her with her father at the […]

Can sponsorship change everything? Hear it from six Compassion alumni

In the face of the enormity of poverty in our increasingly complex world, it can be hard to see the tangible ways our efforts make an impact. Sometimes, it can even be hard to see God at work around us. But when we lean in and listen, there is a glorious invitation: Come and see […]

Why Child Protection Workshops are essential to releasing kids from poverty

Protecting children matters. It doesn’t take much convincing to agree on that. Protection and security are essential for children to thrive, so they are a core need that Compassion seeks to address for every child in our program. We could go as far as saying it is essential to the mission of releasing kids from […]
