1.6 Million Orphans Minus One
There are 1.6 million orphans in Burma, but with your sponsorship, you make it 1.6 million minus one. Child sponsorship with World Compassion transforms children from orphans to sons and daughters.
From hopeless to happy.
From abandoned to cherished.
From scared to safe.
Because every child deserves a childhood.
Plain and simple – sponsorship rescues children. Without the support of sponsors, orphans in Burma are abandoned to crippling and lifelong poverty, starvation, forced child labor, and predators like human traffickers.
When you sponsor a child through World Compassion, you are helping to provide full, 24-7 care for an orphan in a Christ-centered family environment. Together, we are rescuing children and restoring the happiness of their childhood, raising them to positively impact their community and country as adults.

How is child sponsorship different at World Compassion?
When you sponsor a child through World Compassion, your support helps provide full-time care for a child through a local church in Burma. Through the local church, our children are legally adopted and raised in a family environment. As a sponsor, you partner with the local church to become a part of this family!
Your $30 a month at World Compassion empowers the local church in Burma to raise these children well under Godly counsel, pay a full-time salary for both house parents who care for the children full-time, and help equip them with opportunities to give them a bright future.
Your support provides food, clothing, school uniforms, tuition, toys, books, medical care, Godly leadership and parenting from a loving team that helps raise them, birthday celebrations and cards and a Christmas celebration as a family, English lessons, field trips, sports activities, and the opportunity for ongoing education.
How much does it cost to raise a child in Burma?
Our high standard of care only costs around $210 for each child per month in Burma. Parents in western countries know this cost is extremely low compared to the cost to raise a child back home.
Many people cannot raise a child for $210 each month, but you can partner with others to sponsor a child for $15, $30, or $60 each month. Your monthly support combined with the gifts of others fully cares for the needs of one child.
Can my small group sponsor a child with World Compassion?
One of you can sign up and be responsible for collecting funds, or each member of your group can set up their sponsorship separately.
