Children represent about half of the almost 900 million people living in extreme poverty. Families all over the world are struggling to provide their children with the most basic needs in food, healthcare, and shelter.
62 million children worldwide suffer from acute malnutrition and 1 in every 7 children are underweight. Another 124 million children are not receiving an education, and those numbers are steadily rising (Unicef 2016).
Poverty greatly increases the possibility of children being orphaned, and opens the doors to sexual exploitation and trafficking. Many desperately loving parents believe that the only way they can give their children food, healthcare, and an education, is by giving them up to an orphanage. For others, human traffickers deceive unsuspecting parents and caregivers into giving up their children, by offering false promises of education or employment.
A loving family has been proven to the best place for a child to form the healthy attachments and the emotional growth necessary for life.
We preserve families through Child Life Sponsorships, feeding initiatives, and educational programs.
Children suffering from malnutrition are measured by social workers trained in using the MUAC- Mid-Upper Arm Measurement as determined by international standards (WHO).
Eligibility for each child is determined by the local community health workers and and other community leaders in partnership with the Compassionate Reach medical advisory team.

A study of adults who graduated from six different sponsorship programs revealed that children enrolled in sponsorships have a 7 – 17% increase in “white collar employment; are 20 to 33% more likely to attend secondary education; a later age for marriage and childbearing; are 8% more likely to send money back to family members decreasing their poverty level; and significantly affect younger siblings who go on to pursue higher education and better employment (Wydick 2013).
“Is it not to share your food with the hungry
and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the naked, to clothe them,
and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?” (Isaiah 58:7)
