Note: This service is not available in our interactive API option.

The SOAP call Get Program Implementor 201309 adds extra fields from the first version. The service provides information on specific CDSP and CSP organizations that partner with Compassion International to implement and administrate one or more ministry intervention programs designed to fulfill Compassion's mission of holistic child development and promote child advocacy.

CDSP is Compassion International's Child Development Sponsorship Program, which connects one child with one sponsor to help that child develop into the extraordinary individual which God ordained.

CSP is Compassion International's Child Survival Program, which equips the worldwide Church to respond to the cry of mothers on behalf of their babies by ensuring a healthy environment and a strong start in life for the poorest and most vulnerable. Using proven child survival strategies, caregivers and their families are equipped to nurture and disciple their children.

The programs provide the following through sponsorship:

  • Educational opportunities
  • Healthcare, supplemental nutrition, and health education
  • Life-skills training
  • A safe and loving environment in which to learn and play
  • The opportunity to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ and be discipled
