Can I visit my sponsored child?

Yes, you can visit your sponsored child! Every year, hundreds of our sponsors go on a visit and find meeting their sponsored child to be life-changing. The day you spend with your child will provide you with a unique insight into their culture and community. Plus, you'll see first-hand the difference your sponsorship is making.

What you need to know about visiting your sponsored child

  • You will need to have been supporting a child with Compassion for a least a year.
  • You need to arrange your visit through our Tours and Visits team. Please get in touch with us at least 6-8 weeks in advance.
  • Visits take place at a Compassion project or other suitable location. If possible, you’ll also visit your sponsored child’s home.
  • While visiting your sponsored child, you'll need to pay for any expenses incurred, including transport, visit host, meals and accommodation.
  • Visits usually take place Monday – Friday and are between 3 and 6 hours long.
