Compassion is a child sponsorship organization that is committed to the spiritual, economic, social and physical development of children living in extreme poverty in 26 countries, enabling them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.
Children are clearly the greatest victims of poverty. Of the 2.2 billion children in our world today, nearly half of them live in desperate conditions. But it is these children who hold the potential to break the cycle of deprivation for future generations.
Compassion has over 50 years of experience working with some of the poorest communities in the world. During that time, more than one million children have been assisted by Compassion.
We support Compassion through contributing to the global Compassion Sunday as well as through individual sponsors in our church.
Vision Rescue aims to free children from all forms of poverty and exploitation by engaging and sustaining them in education. Through this, they will be empowered to define their own future and break out of the cycle of generational poverty.
Vision Rescue is currently operating in Mumbai, Kolkata, and Chennai. Education and nutritional meals are provided five days a week through school buses, which serve as school classrooms and community centres within the slums.
They support not only the street children but the kids’ families and the wider community to combat the ‘slum’ mindset and its challenges.
