Region

Central America and the Caribbean

Compassion sponsors help churches in Central America and the Caribbean make life better for poor children who live there.

One big problem in this region is education. Many poor students drop out after elementary school. Some drop out to work jobs. Others quit because they don’t have hope that school will make their lives better.

Violence is another big problem in this region. Gangs of criminals make many kids feel afraid and hopeless.

Thankfully, kids in Central America and the Caribbean who wouldn't go to school without Compassion's help get to go to school and graduate. Kids who live in dangerous neighborhoods are protected at their Compassion centers, which are safe places to play. They learn about God's plans for their lives, which gives them hope for a better future.
