Independent research proves that Compassion’s sponsorship programme gives children a life-changing foundation of primary education, vocational skills training and a mentor to help them plan for their future. Our Education Interventions enable children to go even further.
Donate today and you can help provide greater education opportunities for young people including scholarships for secondary school and university, vocational training for parents, plus credit and saving schemes for vulnerable families.
“My name is Sameson Tilahun. When I was five-years-old my mother left me at my aunt’s house. I didn’t realise she wasn’t coming back for me. Nobody spoke my language and I didn’t have enough to eat.
I can still remember the day when our neighbour took me to the Compassion project. It felt like I had gone from one world to another. At the project I was given extra tuition. I was taught woodworking and this is how I now make an income. I run my own woodworking business.
My old project arranged for sponsored children to learn training from my workshop. I’m very happy to be a role model. Looking back, I am very grateful for the opportunities I have been given.”
Compassion has been a trusted charity since 1952. Over the last five years, donations from UK donors to our Education Interventions have enabled us to teach 14,698 individuals income-generating skills.
We visited an intervention to build a computer lab in Haiti our company supported. We were amazed to see the level of transparency and professionalism from all the people we encountered. We are very proud to be able to partner with such a great organisation in Compassion.
