Share your powerful story

Join the Sponsor Selfie Day global movement by adding your story to our feed. Simply share a photo of your sponsored child on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, write why you're a sponsor in the caption and tag @CompassionUK with the hashtag #SponsorSelfieDay

Begin your sponsorship story today

If you don't already sponsor a child with Compassion, we invite you to start your sponsorship journey today. Sponsoring a child in extreme poverty is an incredible thing to do. You'll empower them by providing life-changing support including food, education, health-checks and the care of a local church. 

Your sponsorship will be a unique relationship where you’ll exchange letters with your sponsored child and see the difference you’re making over time. Meet the kids currently waiting for a sponsor and begin a friendship that is sure to change your life and theirs for the better.

Sponsor a child and bring them hope today
