These are the causes I support and advocate support for. I have done some pretty extensive research to choose these causes and believe anything you can do to support them is effectively and efficiently going toward the cause and not the administration.

Child Survival & Development
  • Child Survival Program - Babies in developing countries are fighting for survival before they’re even born. You can protect them. Not only can you save lives, you can help babies and moms rise above the effects poverty and realize their potential. 
  • Child Development Sponsorship Program - Compassion International exists as a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults. 
Leadership Training
  • Leadership Development Program - The Leadership Development Program gives students the opportunity to attend a university and be participants rather than bystanders. Their education includes: A full college curriculum, Courses in Christian leadership training , Christian worldview and leadership development, Discipleship training , World mission studies, Inductive Bible study methods, Effective interpersonal skills, Personal life-skills development (time management, study skills and a Christian view of sexuality), and Compassion-taught seminars, workshops and retreats on the development of Christian character and leadership potential.
Disease Prevention

  • Bite Back - Malaria begins with a bite. We believe that generation change can end malaria with an even bigger bite. The BITE BACK campaign is mobilizing youth around the country to purchase 300,000 mosquito nets to protect African children from malaria. Let’s be the generation that ends malaria.
  •  Aids Initiative - Thousands of children in Africa have suffered the trauma of seeing one or both parents die as a result of the HIV/AIDS epidemic sweeping the continent. You can help ease the pain of AIDS-affected children and their families by giving a gift for the AIDS Initiative. Your gift will provide:
    • food, shelter and basic care for AIDS orphans
    • spiritual counseling and prayer
    • medical treatments, including AIDS-inhibiting antiretroviral therapy
    • HIV/AIDS awareness education for parents and children
    Every 14 seconds a child is orphaned by AIDS. Don't let another second slip away.
Clean Water Initiatives
  • Water of Life - Compassion's Water of Life contains a bucket, hose, filter, connector and a syringe that's used occasionally for rinsing the filter with clean water. Training on how to use Compassion's Water of Life and hygiene education are provided with every system delivered, to ensure positive long-term results and improved health. Compassion's Water of Life is based on the same technology developed for kidney dialysis. Each filter is made up of tiny micro tubes with pores hundreds of times smaller than the diameter of a human hair. These pores remove deadly bacteria and allow only clean water to pass through for drinking. The filter effectively eliminates Cholera, Typhoid, E. Coli, Amoebic Dysentery, and many other bacterial contaminants.
  • Dry Tears - Have you wondered what you could do to help bring clean water to the people of Africa? So did we, and we came up with some simple, yet effective ways to help raise money to ease the suffering and show compassion to those in Africa.
  • Healing Waters International - Healing Waters International empowers local ministry partners to bring physical, social and spiritual transformation to poor communities by providing sustainable, safe water solutions.
  • charity: water - charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. 100% of public donations directly fund water projects.
