You want to make a difference.
We want to help you.

We’re passionate about seeing children break free from poverty, but we know we can’t do it alone. We need people like you to help make it happen—volunteers who use their talents, give of their time and pursue their passion for justice.

Together, we can do so much more.

Together, we are Compassion.
