'Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.' Proverbs 31: 8-9
With a mission to release children from poverty in Jesus’ name, Compassion have been implementing individual child development projects for over 60 years, working in some of the poorest communities in the world.
As a church we have a long-standing relationship with Compassion and a particular focus on Togo through child sponsorship projects.
Compassion Child Sponsorship connects one child with one sponsor and helps to provide sponsored children with education, nutrition and food supplements, one-on-one support, healthcare, life skills, safe places to play, and the opportunity to hear about God’s love for them.
Sponsored children attend local church-based Child Development Centres where they receive opportunities to develop their potential and see a brighter future free from poverty. Sponsored children are more likely to grow up to be employed and be leaders in their communities and churches.
