Compassion’s Impact

A recent study of Compassion’s child sponsorship program carried out by independent researchers shows a significant impact on sponsored children’s education, employment and leadership .

The peer-reviewed research will be published in the April issue of the Journal of Political Economy.

Some of the encouraging findings show that sponsored children stayed in school longer and were more likely to finish secondary education than their non-sponsored peers. They were 50-80 percent more likely to complete a university education.
