About Compassion Canada:

Founded in 1963, Compassion Canada is one of 15 chapters that are part of a global Christian ministry. Compassion partners with over 5,000 church partners in 26 countries, working towards eliminating child poverty. It aims to accomplish this by helping children develop healthy minds, bodies, relationships and a lasting faith in Jesus Christ.

Compassion has four core programs. The Child Sponsorship program (representing 88% of spending) provides children with access to education, healthcare, food and life skills. In F2015, 1,701,025 children were registered in the program, and over 4 million letters from sponsors were delivered to the children. The Child Survival program (representing 3% of spending) rescues moms and babies from poverty by providing food and education. In F2015, 30,191 moms and babies were cared for through this program. The Leadership Development program (representing 2% of spending) provides scholarships and skills development to young adults. In F2015, 2,411 students were enrolled in the program, and 615 students successfully completed the program. The Complementary Interventions program (representing 7% of spending) addresses one-time needs beyond the sponsorship program. Such needs include access to the basic necessities of life, job training or secure housing.
