Of all the children in Compassion's child sponsorship program, what percentage are currently sponsored?
Good Morning Marissa! This number fluctuates frequently as you can imagine because we are daily getting new sponsor's and children. Currently however, 90.7% of our children globally are sponsored (9.3% waiting for a sponsor), and just in our United States office, 89.7% are sponsored (10.3% waiting for a sponsor).
May be helpful to Compassion to know which country has the lowest percentage sponsored, longest waiting time, most sponsor visits, etc. Also, percentage of physically challenged/orphaned children sponsored, average number of sponsored child per sponsor, average sponsored years per child, etc.
Hello, I am an advocate and am talking to a couple churches about a Compassion Sunday. Last year I saw a post on this site of a Compassion report with the number of unsponsored children by country. The report was dated June 30, 2014. I was wondering if you could post an update to this report. I wanted to show each of the churches where the greatest need was.
Also, as a possible idea, would it be possible to post this report somewhere on the Advocate page whenever it is updated? I think it would be an awesome tool for us to use throughout the year when we select children and packets for advocating.
