Partnership

The local church is central to our mission. They are the implementers of Compassion’s program, so it is imperative that we do partnership well. The following four principles guide our relationship with each church partner:

We seek to live out these principles by coming alongside churches who want to deepen their impact among children and youth in their communities. We build relationships and ask questions to learn about their vision. We equip them with training and provide financial and organizational support to ensure they have what they need to help children grow and develop holistically (physically, cognitively, socio-emotionally and spiritually). We also work with each church to identify specific needs that are hindering children’s development, such as lack of access to clean water, mosquito-borne illnesses, and the effects of disaster. As churches prioritize these needs and propose solutions, we offer resources and guidance to assist them in addressing these issues.

Every child in Kenya deserves the opportunity to thrive. Compassion’s program is most effective at releasing children from poverty when church partners are able to own and adapt it to meet the needs of individual children and youth. Every year, we eagerly invite new churches to partner and grow with us to carry out the mission of releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name!
