Hi Richard! Thank you so much for your heart to invest in the lives of children around the world! I hope you're enjoying your relationship with your child currently! I am not a representative for Gospel for Asia's Bridge of Hope and so I am not educated in depth on their ministry. However, I do know a couple of distinct differences between us.

Bridge of Hope works primarily in Asia whereas Compassion works in 26 different countries throughout Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean. Bridge of Hope trains up national missionaries to go out and spread the gospel to areas they work in. Compassion is not a missions focused organization. We are focused on one to one child sponsorship and holistic child development, engaging each child as a complete person. Our international staff are exclusively indigenous to the countries we work in and we do not send missionaries from the United States to work in our countries. Instead, Compassion chooses to partner with the local church who can teach, train, and mentor the children in our program. This is done in partnership with parents and the community.

You can read more about the specifics of our program on our website's post titled, Six Questions to Ask Before You Sponsor a Child.  I hope this helps! Thank you again for loving children and for your desire and passion for more children around the world to hear the good news of Jesus Christ!
