Child Survival Program

Back ground of the Projects

Since infant mortality is extremely high in some parts of the world, the first priority in promoting effective child development is to ensure that children survive the early years when they are most vulnerable to disease and malnutrition. That means educating the mother or primary caregiver, before and after her child is born, about providing critical care during the earliest years. They are provided education in these areas
What’s more, recent research in child development is clear: The first five years are a crucial period in the development of a child and this development directly affects the quality of adult life. Brain development is almost wholly completed by age 2 and malnutrition rates peak at around 24 months of age. This implies the need for early interventions concerning.

Goal

In response to the Great Commission, Compassion International exists as an advocate for children, to release them from their spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enable them to become responsible and fulfilled Christian adults.

Objectives

• Physical Development – Health/nutrition

• Cognitive Development – Fine/gross motor development, Cognitive stimulation

• Socio-Emotional Development – Socialization programs

• Spiritual Development – Exposure to Christian teaching and the gospel

This research suggests that it is crucial for Compassion to affect the lives of younger children during this crucial two-year window of development. Our Child Survival Program works — and pays big dividends as a child grows older.

GOBIFFF

  • Growth Monitoring — steady growth is a good sign of adequate nutrition
  • Oral Rehydration Therapy (ORT) — restores fluids lost to diarrhea
  • Breast-feeding — promotes infant growth, facilitates bonding with the mother, and reduces incidence of illness
  • Immunization — an effective way to reduce or eliminate many diseases that cause childhood death and disability
  • Female Literacy — the mother’s level of education is directly tied to child survival
  • Food — food or supplements fight off malnourishment
  • Family Planning — greater spacing between births allows the mother’s body to be better prepared for the rigors of pregnancy and to provide greater attention to each child’s needs

Child Development through Sponsorship Program

Back ground of the Projects

Child sponsorship leads to a lifetime of learning. It’s a powerful approach to Christian child development, providing children with a broader view of the world and educating sponsors about the political and economic realities sponsored children face. This relationship provides both children and sponsors with a concrete example of how God works around the world.

Goal

In response to the Great Commission, Compassion International exists as an advocate for children, to release them from their spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enable them to become responsible and fulfilled Christian adults.

Objectives

Learning for Life focuses on a child’s life from school age until program completion, aiming to prepare each sponsored child with the skills and knowledge required to assume adulthood, including those activities that will make the community a better place to live. We focus on preparing children to:

• Follow Jesus Christ in faith and deed as part of their spiritual training

• Support themselves and share with others in need as part of their economic training

• Be responsible members of their family, church, community and nation as part of their social training

• Maintain their own physical well-being

The knowledge and skills gained through these various activities contribute to the quality of life children experience throughout their whole lives. It all starts with one person taking the time to sponsor one child.
