Week 1 – New year, new dreams

Togo   Faith

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11, NIV). When sponsored children, like these friends in Togo, learn that God has plans for them, they gain a crucial key — hope — to breaking the poverty cycle: hope.

Week 52 – Future in Christ

Togo   Education

As we look forward to a new year, these sponsored children are looking forward to a brighter future. That’s because they learn skills at their Compassion centers and attend school. Only 40 percent of girls and 51 percent of boys in Togo attend secondary school. Sponsors and Compassion’s church partners are working together to increase those numbers.

Week 49 – Longing to Learn 

Thailand   Education

Before a Compassion partner church intervened, children in the isolated village of Kotah, Thailand, weren’t getting the education they deserved. Many times the kids would show up for school, but the teachers wouldn’t. Thanks to the church’s efforts, sponsored children are learning skills their parents never did.
