Releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name 

At Compassion, we work to release children from all forms of poverty and see them flourish in their God-given potential! Our mission transforms the lives of children, families, churches, communities, and nations.  


The Compassion Way.

We are serious about personal growth and inviting one another in. We are here for a reason — the mission! We have fun and value culture, community and employee wellness. We work to create unity in diversity, psychological safety, and encourage high-feedback to make Compassion an even better place to work.  

Here for a Reason

We desire to have a heart like Jesus that breaks over the plight of children in poverty, desiring to see them reach their full potential in Jesus (Isaiah 1:17).

Serious About Personal Growth

We embrace a growth mindset committed to lifelong learning in goodness, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, mutual affection and love (Philippians 3:12). 

100% For One Another

We are for one another when we are together and apart. We seek the best in and for others (Philippians 2:4). 

Careful with Our Words

We understand the power of words, so we listen and reflect before we respond (Ephesians 4:29).

Invite Others In

We bond, build and create as a team. We are secure in our identity and connect emotionally with others in ways that encourage trust (1 Thessalonians 5:11).


Here’s what makes us different.

In everything we do at Compassion, we put Christ at the centre and seek to work with integrity, discernment, dignity, stewardship, and excellence. 


We believe God desires that we live undivided lives, where our heart, soul, mind and body are consistently working together to increasingly reflect the character of Jesus in all settings and circumstances. What we think, what we say and what we do should be congruent and reliable (Romans 12:17).


We believe God guides us in multiple ways (Scripture, prayer, wise counsel, expertise) to make community-affirmed, Spirit-led decisions as we pursue God’s will in accomplishing our mission together (Romans 12:1-2).


We believe each person is created in God’s image and bears God’s likeness. As such, we seek to reflect the example of Jesus in how we honour, respect and love all people (Genesis 1:27).


We believe all resources entrusted to us (people, time, money, knowledge, reputation and materials) are precious to our mission. Therefore, we protect and deploy them with great care and wisdom to maximize both short and long-term impact (Luke 12:48). 


We believe excellence honours God and inspires people. It is not perfection, but rather doing our very best with what we have to advance our mission (Colossians 3:23).
