My Venezuelan friend in Ecuador is preparing for pastoral ministry and is interested to learn more about Compassion programs, including specifically about requirements. Is there someone she can contact to learn more? Her language is Spanish.

Thanks! I will let her know. She also told me of a classmate at the seminary who is a ministry leader interested in learning more about Compassion, so she will share the information with him, too.
There is so much excellent information on Compassion's website. Does Compassion perchance have information online in Spanish that they could use for their research also?

Debi, it depends on what kind of research they are wanting to do. If they are looking for general information about what Compassion does, they might read through the About Us section on our website. If they are wanting information about partnership, they need to contact us for more information on how to send a written proposal to the country office in their country for consideration. We do not have partnership information on our website, and regrettably we are only able to partner with so many churches. I do not anticipate us marketing partnership like this in the future.

Yes, it is information like in the "About Us" section that I was asking about, but in Spanish. I'm not seeing a translate button or "español aquí" link. Am I missing something?

Debi, we don't provide that information in Spanish on the USA website, but you are able to change the language under settings using Chrome :).

Great! Its aan excellent idea!
Every child is given the opportunity to develop mentally, emotionally, spiritually, economically, socially and physically.
In some cases, the cost of school fees, clothing and supplies are provided. In other cases, it means providing tutoring, help with homework, encouragement and, if necessary, participation in a literacy program outside the classroom. Children also learn a vocation that can later provide them employment.
Children are taught about hygiene and how to maintain personal health; care is given as needed. Some Compassion-assisted children also receive supplementary food.
Children participate in sports and exercise where they can develop their gross and fine motor movement skills. In some places, children have the opportunity to receive evaluations from professionals.
link each child to a local church-based program where Christian adults offer love, guidance, personal attention, guided recreation and safety. Children also learn life skills.
Children receive regular Bible training and encouragement through a local church committed to Jesus Christ and the children in its community.
