This weekend I’m going to check out The Compassion Experience. After this last week of elections, I believe we could all use a bit more compassion in our lives.
What is The Compassion Experience?
This free event features an interactive journey through the true stories of children living in developing countries like the Philippines, Kenya, Uganda and the Dominican Republic.
Within 2,000 square feet of interactive exhibit space, visitors get to see inside the homes, markets, and schools of children living in other cultures. While each child’s story starts in poverty, it ends in hope.
According to the exhibit, “One of the best parts of each Compassion Experience story is stepping into the final room. It’s thrilling to see where each journey leads, even as the stories are still being written. Compassion gives children back the freedom to think about ‘one day’.”
If you go to this link, https://changetour.compassion.com/, you can find further information about each child’s individual story. Learn about how Jey from Kenya got out from behind bars and became a successful DJ and youth minister. Or, learn more about the Philipines through Kiwi’s eyes, as she tells us how important her mentors were in motivating her to dream about her future.
