THE COMPASSION EXPERIENCE

A brand new innovation to the UK, The Compassion Experience offers you the chance to visit another world without leaving your own. See with your own eyes how sponsorship transforms lives through this interactive, mobile experience; visiting churches, schools, and other venues across the country.
The Compassion Experience is housed in a Compassion-branded truck. When deployed the structure allows guests to take an immersive tour through replicas of the homes, environments and stories of two children who have been a part of Compassion’s programme. Though the use of an iPod and headphones guests have the opportunity to hear from Sameson or Shamin, who share first-hand what daily life was like growing up in extreme poverty.
As you enter the Experience, you’ll be instantly transported to Uganda and Ethiopia— visiting homes, markets and schools as you experience sights, sounds, and events from the lives of Sameson or Shamin. Witness with your own eyes the impact one caring sponsor can have.
Each tour takes approximately 20 minutes and guests are welcome to experience one or both stories.
Through the experience visitors will witness the help, new life and hope that transforms a child’s life when Compassion is able to help through the generosity of a personal sponsor. At the end of the tour, guests enter a room where they can view photos and information about children of all ages who are waiting for sponsors.
The Experience is a free, family friendly event which gives you a tangible way to share the realities of daily poverty with your own children, family, friends and community.
