Fully Funded: Meet Critical Needs for Children in Bolivia
Transforming Lives in Bolivia
Compassion is committed to releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name. With just under 385 million children globally living in extreme poverty (less than $1.90 per day),1 the task is urgent and demands action. Compassion currently partners with frontline churches in 25 countries to try to improve the long-term outcomes for more than 2 million children. All children registered with Compassion benefit from being known, loved and protected. They receive Christ-centered guidance, health checks and nutritional supplements and they participate in academic lessons and recreational activities. Through a relationship with a local church and a caring sponsor, a child is able to discover his or her true value.
Sometimes, in order to provide children with the best opportunity to thrive, a center or group of centers will request funding for a special project — to build improved sanitation facilities or drill a well, to build and furnish classrooms or to offer vocational training. These are just a few examples of the critical interventions that ensure the health, safety and outlook for children registered with Compassion.
