I just want to thank everyone at Compassion who had a part in making a home visit video of my new sponsored sweetie from Indonesia, Mikhael, and sharing it with me! I love it, and it gives me a much clearer idea of the conditions in which he and his family live. I have already watched it too many times to count, and I will treasure it always! It was Mikhael's sponsorship video that captured my heart and led me to sponsor him, and God provided a little job in answer to my prayers to be able to sponsor Mikhael and another little boy, who I also fell in love with (through his video)! I am very grateful!

While I am here, I also wanted to ask if Dirly from ID also has a home visit video. I have received his sponsorship and project videos, but not his home visit video.
Thank you so much for all you do for the precious children, and for us sponsors too!

Hi Laura! Thank you so much for your feedback and I've passed it along :). We are excited to be able to provide this for some of our sponsors! Dirly does not have a home video but if we ever take one, we'll be sure to put it on your My Account :). 

Angelee,  we only have videos for select children at this time. If we ever have the opportunity to do a video for your child, you will see it posted in the "My Sponsorships" page once you log in.

That would be so neat to see home videos or project videos! It would be great if Compassion could work on the project videos, as that would cover the kids of a lot of sponsors at one time!

Emily, could you pass a message to my project ID coordination in India that I would like to have a home video of our child? I realize, it is a fact they are going to make it for me, but it's worth to try. I would like to have the movie to educate own kids about poverty.

Hi newsponsor! The selection of which children have videos taken of their homes is not completely up to our staff in India but there are factors involved such as, getting permission from a family to take a video, as it's their home and we want to respect their privacy. With 1.7 million children registered in our program, we currently do not have a home video of each child and their homes as much as we'd love to, and I cannot ask that a video specifically be taken of your child's home as we would not be able to honor this request for every sponsor that asked this of us. 

I'm sorry for this inconvenience but be encouraged that we'll place the video on your My Account for your family to enjoy if one is ever taken of their home :). In the meantime, there are many other resources we have for your children to be educated on poverty! You can find videos on poverty through our website as well as on our YouTube channel! You might also enjoy sharing our Compassion Explorer magazine with them! It's an edition made specifically with children like yours in mind!
