Resources for you and your family

These resources are designed for families with children aged 3-12 in mind, helping you and your family build a deeper relationship with your sponsored child.

You can travel the world with us through World Explorers discovering more about the countries where Compassion sponsored children live.

You’ll meet some of the children and hear about their lives and hopes for the future as you travel with us, as well as finding out interesting facts and information about each country. You can even try your hand at making a traditional meal from the recipes on each page.

In Bible Explorers we have written 12 Bible devotions with activities and thoughts for discussion that you can do as a family. God’s heart for the poor is clear throughout the Bible, so together you can investigate and discuss what this means for you.

As a sponsor, your role in supporting your sponsored child is so important. You can really help them to know that they are special and loved by writing, praying and encouraging them. Many of the activities are family-friendly ideas that can be made to send to your sponsored child.

Our Family Calendar has lots of useful dates of international days and ideas for having a family night together once a month. With each of the dates you’ll find resources throughout the site that you can use to deepen your family’s awareness of poverty issues and to encourage your sponsored child.

In the Take Action and Facts sections of the site you’ll find lots of ideas on how to get more involved, as well as statistics and issues relating to poverty.

 We hope that you find the resources helpful and that you enjoy family time together learning more about God’s amazing world and His heart for the poor.

Let the journey begin!
