Our Mission / Objective

Compassion Australia is a Christian child development and advocacy ministry, working in more than 26 developing nations to release children from poverty in Jesus’ name. We are distinctly Christ-centered, church-based and child-focused and work exclusively with local churches to deliver our holistic child development programs – programs that cater to children in all stages of life, from pregnant mothers and babies through to young adults and university students.

Founded in 1952, Compassion began by providing Korean War orphans with food, shelter, education and healthcare. Today, Compassion International supports more than 1.7 million children around the world.

Our approach to child development is holistic, starting in the earliest stages of a child’s development and continuing all the way into young adulthood. We believe children are the community’s greatest resource and are key to addressing poverty. It is a strategic, long-term approach that supports children today and tomorrow and equips them with the skills they need to develop into independent adults, free from the shackles of poverty.

Our Services

Compassion has four core programs, including:

  • Child Survival (mothers and infants),
  • Child Sponsorship (four to young adulthood),
  • Leadership Development (tertiary education and leadership training),
  • Critical Interventions (essential and urgent needs from emergency medical for an individual to fresh water for hundreds of children and their families).

Projects in Progress

Child Survival Program

Compassion’s Child Survival Program assists pregnant mothers and mothers and caregivers of at-risk babies and infants by providing medical assistance, pre- and post-natal care, nutritional supplements, parental education, literacy and numeracy skills, vocational training and spiritual nurturing.

Child Sponsorship Program

Compassion’s Child Sponsorship Program aims to disciple, equip and enable children living in desperate poverty to develop into fulfilled and responsible adults through a one-to-one relationship with a sponsor who provides for their core needs – spiritually, economically, physically, socially and emotionally.

Leadership Development Program

Compassion’s Leadership Development Program identifies outstanding graduates of the Child Sponsorship Program and provides them with the opportunity to attend university and receive Christian leadership training, so they are equipped to serve and bring hope for the future to their impoverished communities and nations.

Complementary Interventions

Compassion’s Complementary Interventions provide essential activities which enhance, improve and complement our core programs, and which cannot be met by sponsorship funds alone, such as: access to clean water and proper sanitation, disaster relief, emergency medical care and more!
