One visit this organization's large HQ in Colorado Springs and you will see that your money is NOT going to poor children! I also hear that the CEO is making a very large salary, one unheard of in non profits and authentic Christian organizations (although I have not confirmed this).

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Dismantle it and leave Christian charity work to true Christian charities.

I love Compassion. My sister and I have both visited different Compassion projects in Africa and have been impressed with the care and support they offer in tough & challenging conditions. Have a great amount of respect for the work they do.

The Great!

Compassion international discourages any outside contact with a child sponsored through their program. As an American living in Ecuador for a number of years, I was curious when a poor family disclosed to me that they had children in the program. They had a family sponsor that wanted to send some things directly to the family but was told they should send everything through Compassion. I was also told they weren't receiving some things, Shoes, clothing, medical supplies that the organization had received from the sponsor. They don't want anything shared between the sponsor and the child unless they are the go between. I understand sometimes poor people will ask donor sponsors to send money directly to the families and it doesn't reach the child, but I think Compassion goes too farwith the restriction.
