I love having access to maps of where each center is located in the "Where we Work" section.  I have been able to use Google Earth to locate my kids' villages and cities.  When you zoom into street view, you can actually see the conditions these kids are living in.  It makes it more "real" and shows why this ministry and these sponsorships are so important! When viewing some of these cities it makes my heart happy, knowing that I'm making things a little better  for these children.  I was even able to find the actual child development center my little guy in Indonesia goes to!  That made my day and helped me feel more connected to him!

It's at the top of the Compassion home page. Click on "About Us" and then click on "Where We Work". Then you just have to find the country your child lives in and find the icon marking his Child Development Center on the map. You'll have to hover over the blue markers until you find that center's number, which is the first four number of the child's ID.

Yeah, it takes a while to find some of them.  Keep trying though!! If you keep zooming in on the map, they spread out and make it a little easier to find as long as you know the general area they should be in.
