If there is one thing Compassion sponsored children in Ghana cherish most at the project, it is letters from their sponsors. They are the only physical thing the children have to prove that they have some special person somewhere outside Ghana who cares about them and loves them. Some children at the project get loads of letters from their sponsors. On the other hand, there are some children who have never tasted how getting a letter from a sponsor feels.
Famous American basketball player, Bill Bradley once said, “Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.” At Compassion we take this very seriously and at all levels, from the fundraising offices to the project staff in the field.
When Compassion International came to Ghana many years ago a lot of churches already had a vision for the great commission and to help children in poverty. But the churches were incapacitated by lack of funds. So when Compassion Ghana cast her vision, she received a huge number of applications from churches wanting to go into partnership.
