Compassion Experience

experience another world - without leaving yours

The Compassion Experience is a FREE interactive event where you can experience what life is like for those living in poverty. This unique, interactive, audio and visual experience is the first of its kind in the UK. This summer, leave your passport behind and travel to Ethiopia and Uganda.

Through faithfully replicated environments and living conditions, experience what daily life is like in these countries. As you stand in the homes of children born into poverty, surrounded by their possessions and memories, you'll hear their personal stories, told from their own perspective.

Each child's story starts in poverty and ends in hope. 

 

Why should I go?

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. Travel to another country, and see another culture, and experience what life is like for millions of children around the world - all without getting on a plane. 

Compassion Experience

“My first impression … was how real it actually is. If it was coming to my town, I’d say, ‘You must go!’” Nathan Tasker, recording artist 

“I highly recommend this. It’s an eye-opener.” Sheila

“A sobering, yet hopeful experience. My 14-year-old said 'this was so worth our time today.'" Kristine
