In addition to your monthly sponsorship donation and encouraging letters, you may wish to send gifts to your sponsored child. We are delighted when sponsors decide to provide additional support. We do not mail parcels because delivery in developing countries is unreliable and expensive, but you are able to send paper items like stickers, posters and colouring pages.

We also provide an opportunity to send a monetary gift. The options are: Birthday Gift, General Gift, Family Gift or Child Development Centre Gift. Compassion Canada forwards 100 per cent of the money to purchase a gift in the child’s community. Child Development Centre staff assist children and their families to ensure funds are used appropriately and to discuss how to best use the gift to benefit the child and family. If you have a specific gift in mind, we will forward your suggestion, but ultimately the child or their family will make the final decision.

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.
