I'm interested in sponsoring a child? How long will I be able to sponsor the child I choose?

Your sponsorship will last until the child completes the program or moves away to an area where Compassion is not present. Usually children complete the program between the ages of 18-22, so, if you were to sponsor a very young child, say 3 years old, you would be their only sponsor for 15-19 years. If you sponsor an older child (and there is a BIG need for sponsors for older children right now) your sponsorship would be much shorter, possibly only 8-10 years.
