I received a letter stating my child is no longer on the program because they did not meet the requirements or expectations of the program. What are the expectations for the child/family to be a part of the compassion program?

Hi Jennifer! I am another sponsor, and not an employee, so I obviously do not have an answer for your specific child. But from what I have read on the website and so forth, it might actually be a good thing if the child no longer meets the expectations. From what I understand, this may mean their financial situation has improved to the point where they no longer need assistance. 
That said, I know it is hard to lose a sponsored child. The same thing happened to one of mine. The employees on this forum will be able to give you a better answer though. I just thought I'd tell you what I have learned.
God bless you!

Hi Jennifer, 
I am so sorry to hear that your child, Alexander will no longer be part of the Compassion program. Regrettably, I do not have specific notes as to what regulations he or his caregiver were not following, and thus it could be one of many reasons. As Rebekah states, our children do have to fall into a certain poverty rank, meaning their household cannot make more then that amount, or they will be released from the program. However, we do usually have notes when this is the case, but it is always a possibility. There are a multitude of other aspects that may be the case. For example, the children do have to attend the Compassion center a certain amount of hours per week, they must not communicate outside of Compassion's guidelines, they must not miss more than a certain amount of weeks of the program, etc. Often times, kiddos may end up leaving because they cannot attend the program because they must help their families earn income, or collect water. There are many possibilities and I am so sorry that we were not given exact details, but please know that typically if not many details are given, this does not mean that it is a negative reason, it just means we likely had little contact with them before they left. However, I know how hard it is to lose a child. Please know that I will be praying for your heart during this time! Please let us know if we can do anything to help!
