Hi! I'm from Argentina, I sponsor a child in Ethiopia. In a few months I' be travelling to Nepal, Indonesia and Phillipines. I'd like to know if I can visit some Centers over there. In that case I'd lo ve to have the address in Indonesia and Phillipines. I'm planning my vacations at the moment, so I'm not sure in wich locations in those countries I'll be exactly. Thank You! I'd really love to visit any Center there. Daniela

Daniela,
That is so exciting that you will be visiting these countries!  I am another sponsor so I thought I would tell you what I know since it is the week end and the office won't answer till Monday.   

I haven't ever had the pleasure of visiting any Compassion centers but do know that a background check is required.  My church in the US requires a background check to work with children as a volunteer so it is not an unusual requirement these days.  It takes at least six to eight weeks in country so get started right away!

If you can get this done before your trip another thing I would be prepared to do is to sponsor another child while there!  I have no doubt you will meet an unsponsored child or two that you would want to sponsor!  And what fun to have met them face to face!

I so hope and pray you can get this taken care of before your trip!!

Daniela, I agree with Denise. The email address to get started is visits@us.ci.org, if you sponsor through the U.S. If you sponsor through another country office, that would be different. Have fun!

Hi Daniela! That is super exciting that you are getting to travel to so many countries! You are going to have a wonderful time! As others have mentioned, we can definitely arrange a visit at some centers in these countries. The place to start would be to fill out a request here and the visits team will be in touch.
