Holistic child development starting with prenatal care through young adulthood is the mission of Compassion International. The organization partners with more than 6,500 Christian churches in 26 countries to offer sponsorship, physical and spiritual development and leadership training for millions of children in poverty around the world.

The sponsors involved with Compassion International provide monthly gifts, letter writing and prayer, and in return children receive ongoing Christian training, educational opportunities and key health and life skills.
