The church projects in each country decide as they have a greater understanding and knowledge of the needs of their community. Children are registered for sponsorship between the ages of three and nine. The eligibility of each child is determined on an individual basis which includes an assessment of  the family income, living conditions and overall family situation. These children are the poorest of the poor in a community which has been assessed as needy by Compassion staff. Generally, one child per family is sponsored.
