Educate, equip and encourage one another

We're so thankful for our supporters who not only sponsor children but also speak up on behalf of children in need. Here are resources to help you share both the realities of poverty and ways to help children around the world.

Volunteer Resources


Take action with Compassion

God has blessed every person with unique skills, passions and resources. This kit offers you the information and resources you'll need to fundraise in the way you'd like and in the area of our ministry you're most passionate about.


Compassion Sunday

Compassion Sunday is your opportunity to share about Compassion's ministry with your church, small group or even a group of friends. That can be intimidating, but we have tools to make it easy. On Compassion Sunday, you'll:

  • Make a brief presentation during your worship service or ask a Compassion Representative to come and share.
  • Show a short video.
  • Invite others to sponsor children.

Whether you're a teen, a retired person, or any age in between, God can use you to share your heart for the poor and see children sponsored.

Curriculum Material


Step into My Shoes

Step into My Shoes is a flexible, immersive experience and devotional for families and groups. Each step helps children walk in the shoes of Ugandan family Pastor Tom, his wife Nancy and their children and then invites us to follow Jesus' footsteps—caring for children and for those in need.

In addition to the 7-step journey, we have developed two large group options. The Group Experience condenses the journey into a one-time 90 minute experience. The Step 01 Group Launch begins as a group and families are equipped to complete the rest of the steps at home.


True Story: What God wants us to do about poverty

Students will discover the difference they can make in the world—and the difference they can help others make as well—with True Story, a new youth-group curriculum exploring the spiritual nature of poverty, God's heart for those in need and the unique role of the Church in God's plan to restore the world.
