Compassion believes that poverty is best addressed through the transformation of the individual child. Compassion is delighted to help you send special gifts to your sponsored child. We do not mail packages, because parcel delivery in developing countries is unreliable and expensive. Instead, we encourage you to send a monetary gift to your child to purchase an appropriate gift locally. You can also send monetary gifts for a specific family or project. Gifts for your child can mark special occasions such as birthdays and graduation. Most children write to thank their sponsors and say what they have purchased. Compassion Canada forwards 100 percent of the sum you donate to the child, family or project you designate. If you have a specific gift in mind, you can mention it to us and we will pass your suggestion along. Local project staff assist children and their families to ensure that funds are used appropriately.

You can also help by supporting Respond with Compassion programs. These programs address issues that our Child Development program alone cannot, such as providing disaster relief, AIDS intervention, clean water and more. These programs are funded separately from the Child Development program. You can do this by adding a monthly donation to Sponsorship Plus. Please contact our office to do so. You can also donate to a Respond wth Compassion program online.

Compassion’s child development ministry is not based on material handouts. We facilitate individual child development by providing learning opportunities that a child may not encounter in another situation. Learning is central to Compassion’s mission-we provide life skills that foster each child’s success. Learning opportunities also are provided for parents, which enables them to improve their parenting skills and provide for their families. Therefore we do not allow extra money to be given every month, but there are several opportunities over the year for you to bless your sponsored child and family with a special monetary gift.

Your financial gifts to your sponsored child are greatly appreciated as they bring joy and help to ease the struggles of poverty. You are welcome to send a family gift of $40 – $1000 per year and specify that your sponsored child’s family use your gift for further education by simply asking us to attach a Gift Instruction to your gift. However, gifts are more effective when the child and family are free to use them for their greatest need. The project staff will talk with the child and family to help them to spend your gift in the wisest way, with the best long-term improvement for the family.

Your financial gifts to your sponsored child are greatly appreciated as they bring joy and help to ease the struggles of poverty. We have several types of gift suggestions:

Child gifts, including birthday gifts. We recommend a gift between $15 and $100, which you can send up to twice per year.

Family gifts, ranging from $40 to $1,000 per year. Families often use gifts to buy livestock, items to repair the home, food, clothing, or bedding.

Graduation gifts, which range from $25 to $2,000. When a child leaves the Compassion program, you may wish to send a farewell gift which will help set the child up for the future.

Christmas gifts. Recommended amount – $25 per child. Christmas gifts are pooled to ensure no Compassion assisted child goes without a gift, even if they are not yet sponsored

Gifts that might be purchased for the children by the child development centre staff include clothing, shoes, small toys, household items, linen, food and livestock.

Other than Christmas gifts, 100% of your gift reaches your child and family.
