I am looking at the "Learn more about Timo" section and am wondering why the tab "child information" has not been updated since 2013 and the "Child development Center" has not been updated since 2009?

Updates are about every two years for the child, so that means this year you should get an update and new picture. Yay! I think they are planning to change the system so the updates for the child will be yearly. I am not sure what the schedule is to update the center/community information, if there even is one.

Hi Rloomis! I am so glad that you are exploring around your My Account and the information on your child :). Just as Athena mentioned, formal updates are made about your child every two years. In the meantime, your child will keep you updated on current on life events through letter writing which is a personal way for you and your child to get to know each other! You can expect to receive the next formal update on your child around August of this year. 

In regards to your inquiry about the center information, the Kasih Abadi Student Center was started on January 18, 1995. You will not see the date change very often under 'Child Development Center' very often because we only change that date when there is significant changes within your child's project (project name, population, nearest city, etc). For example, my sponsored child's center in India, has not had a center update since 2008. Project information however, is updated consistently across Compassion and your child's center was last reviewed in September of 2014. 

Please rest assured that if there are any updates in your child's center, we will be sure to keep you informed :). I hope this clears up any confusion there might have been when you reviewed your child's profile!
