Raising up a Compassionate Generation


Here at Compassion we have a huge heart for children! Children in poverty across the world but also children here in the UK. We believe that tackling issues of poverty and injustice isn’t something just for adults. God’s little ones can be inspired and educated to make a difference right now, not just when they ‘grow up’.

But we know that engaging children with these issues, and in the Bible, can often be challenging – so we have launched Compassion Explorers! This resource can be used by children’s workers, teachers, and families to spread the good news of Christ to children all across the UK. Our aim is to raise up a whole new compassionate generation who have a heart for the poor.

The Compassion Explorers site is full of fun activities including child friendly recipes from around the world, games and quizzes. In the Bible explorers section you’ll also find 12 Bible studies each with a unique activity. The example below is from the lesson on ‘compassion’ and teaches children the importance of kindness. If you see someone who’s sad and want to be kind to them to cheer them up, you’re showing compassion.

Why not make your own kindness coupons and give them to friends and family as presents? Print out the coupons, colour them in and add in your own ideas of how you can show kindness and compassion.
