Compassion International invites visitors on a sensory journey through the lives of impoverished children that have completed Compassion's sponsorship program. It is an immersive experience where guests can step into true stories that start in poverty and end in hope. 


Guests will walk through exhibits as they listen to the child describe how their life was before and after Compassion.


Volunteers are still needed to help with greeting and setting up guests with iPods, assisting guests with questions, etc. Please send an email to the address listed above for information on the slots available.
