Compassion's values

Our Values

Integrity

69 years of unwavering integrity and depth of professional experience have built a foundation of great credibility for Compassion's ministry. We steward the resources entrusted to us with utmost care.

God's promises to provide

We align our thoughts, motivations, attitudes and actions with the ethical principles found in God’s Word. From the way we sensitively work alongside vulnerable children and parents to how we steward your donations, we’re honest and trustworthy.

Excellence

We’re committed to working with outstanding quality, in a way that honours both God and people. We have world-class competence in developing partnerships with local churches, facilitating sponsor/child relationships and empowering children to learn, develop and overcome poverty.

Our outcomes reflect our unwavering commitment to quality. Compassion is the only child sponsorship organisation with independent research to prove its model really works.

Stewardship

Our work belongs to the children we serve, our church partners, our sponsors and supporters, and ultimately to God.

Dignity

We believe all people are worthy of our respect and love. This influences every aspect of the way we work.

Take our photography as an example - you won’t find us using pictures of children with distended bellies or emaciated bodies. We want to be honest about the challenges people face, yet we’re committed to upholding and respecting their dignity.
