Releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name


As one of the world’s leading child development organizations, Compassion partners with the local church in 25 countries to end poverty in the lives of children and their families.

Today, two million children are discovering lives full of promise and purpose as they develop in all the different aspects of their lives—their minds, bodies and relationships—while giving them the opportunity to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ at a local church.

The ministry of compassion all about ”holistic child development”.

It means they don’t simply respond to poverty by handing out food or Bibles. Instead, Compassion seek to develop children in all the different aspects of their lives—their minds, bodies and relationships—while equipping local churches to share the love of Jesus with them.  

How does holistic child development work?

Through Compassion’s programs in partnership with local churches, children are ministered to in every aspect of their lives, receiving:
Age-appropriate Christian teaching and discipleship at a local church
Formal and non-formal educational opportunities
Health care, hygiene training and supplementary food
Personal attention, guidance and love


Haven is partnering with Compassion to end poverty and bringing God's Shalom to as many children and communities as possible.

Our Mission in Haven is that we we exist to change the world by making disciples, planting churches and ending injustice. The goal of Compassion is to end poverty for children and equip them as disciples. That hits at the core of our mission and identity.

Through this partnership with Compassion, we can change the lives for innumerable children and make disciples out of many and put a dent in poverty and thereby injustice around the world.  

Why become a sponsor?

By becoming a sponsor for a child through Compassion, you change a child’s life.

A child that is more or less left hopeless unless we respond.

For only $47 a month – you can become a sponsor for a child.

What does sponsorship entail?

Besides donating $47 a month that change the Childs life, you also form a relationship with the child you sponsor.

You get to write your child and they will write you; you get to pray for them, and they will pray for you and it’s also possible to visit your child.

Sponsor a child

We are focusing our sponsorship on 2 countries: Bangladesh & Sri Lanka.
We have done that for two reasons: Need & opportunity.
As the children then live in the same cluster in the two countries, it makes it easier to plan visits and do specific things in their community.
