We are looking for people who can spread the word about HG1000. To see 1,000 children sponsored through the HG postcode will require a movement of people working together…

Seeing 1,000 children lifted out of poverty would be amazing.  In the first year of HG1000 we have reached 560!

Could you get a few children sponsored over the next year? By talking to friends? By hosting an HG1000 dinner in your house? By organising an event at work, or through your clubs/networks?It doesn’t have to be complicated. Show them our videos, talk about your own sponsored child.

Another way to encourage others is by showing the individual profiles of children which we can supply.
For Compassion resources and details of children waiting for sponsors – please contact Clare Nelson on 07771 532999 or claren@compassionuk.org 

So…can you commit to seeing 3, or 5 children lifted out of poverty through your advocacy this year?

Would you like to become a registered Compassion Volunteer – sign up here.

Together, let’s do something Historically Great….

Watch the video below to find out about Compassion and our trip to Ghana visiting the children that we sponsor.

The week after Easter five parents and their children went to Ghana with Compassion to not only visit the children they sponsor, but also over 80 children sponsored by people from the St Mark’s community. They took out gifts, video messages, and, thanks to the generosity of many people, were able to fund a day out for 120 children. In the melting heat!!

    It was unforgettable. We visited three projects – a Child Survival Programme, where pregnant women, or those with young children are supported and given healthcare, the Compassion Project at St Paul’s Lutheran Centre in Accra – St Mark’s partner project – and another project in Senya. We made home visits, witnessing the very basic conditions in which the children live. We saw with our own eyes the difference that sponsorship makes. We saw the fantastic organization and commitment of Compassion on the ground. There were tears, many mixed emotions, as we experienced how real the connection is between a child that is sponsored, and the relationship with the sponsor.

    We will try to communicate over the next few months more about the experience. And we have fire in our bellies about seeking to get 1,000 children sponsored in the Harrogate area. Because it brings change – to the children, but also to us. We meet Jesus when we reach out to others. We don’t have much to give, but the most fulfilling purpose in life is to share His love. That’s what this partnership is about.
