How you can help


The work of Compassion for Africa is made possible through the efforts of many generous and faithful people. None of us can change the world by ourselves, but together with God we can change the world one girl, one boy, one family, one village at a time. God calls each of us to do something in the world that will remain incomplete unless you and I do it.

As you give to others, you will find that you will also bless yourself. We are blessed by God to be a blessing to others, but when we give to others we can’t help but spill some on ourselves.

Each one of us has different resources, time, talents, gifts, passions, and ways we like to be involved in what God is doing in the world.

Here’s how you can help our sisters and brothers in Africa through Compassion for Africa:


“When you pray, move your feet.” --African Proverb about the relationship between prayer and practice

Advocate for vulnerable girls and boys in Africa

Even if you yourself don’t have a lot of money to give, you can hold a fund-raiser and tell others about Compassion for Africa and those we serve.

Give a gift for a specific project

We accept gifts of any amount--$5, $10, $25, $50, $100, $1000 or more—God calls each of us to do what we can with what we have where we are. Some of us can give more and some of us can give less).

“Once the commitment is clear, you do what you can, not what you can't. The heart regulates the hands.” --2 Corinthians 8:12, The Message

Give an undesignated gift and allow us to apply it where it is most needed

Form an ongoing partnership with us and your local church, Sunday School class, or mission society

We will provide you with updated stories and pictures of particular projects and children to share with your church, small group, or loved ones.

Make a specific designation to one of our projects

Support a Compassion for Africa volunteer’s travel expenses while on a mission trip

Form a ministry team through your local church to travel to one of the areas in which Compassion for Africa serves

Tell your friends and family about us so that we can awaken others to the needs of the orphan, widow, poor and oppressed. Be educators with us.
