Compassion Experience Event

The Compassion Experience is a project of Compassion International. For over 60 years, Compassion International has been making a difference in the lives of children growing up in some of the most impoverished paces on earth. Though the statistics on poverty have greatly improved over the past 25 years, the reality is that there are still 385 million children living in extreme poverty (defined as less than $1.90/day by World Bank, 2013). This type of poverty stands in direct opposition to children growing up healthy, educated and with every opportunity to achieve their God-given potential. In order to advocate for the most vulnerable children, the Compassion Experience was created to share some of their realities. The Experience gives visitors a chance to see life for some children from a different perspective.

It’s our hope that this perspective provides a continued awareness to both this type of poverty and the opportunity we all share to make a tangible difference for kids still stuck in the cycle of poverty. Compassion’s core strategy for combating child poverty is one-to-one sponsorship. Sponsors are individually connected with a child who will get to know them personally through exchanged letters. A $38-per-month contribution provides life-changing opportunities including: * consistent, nutrient-rich meals * preventative medical care and check-ups * school fees, uniforms, books, and whatever the child needs to attend or stay in school * Bible teaching * professional counseling and mentoring by safe adults * tutoring and vocational training At the end of your tour through The Compassion Experience, you will have an opportunity to sponsor a child.
It’s an invitation to enter the life of a child and invest directly into their future. Rooted in our Christian faith, we operate exclusively through the local church and you can trust our financial integrity. Your support of and relationship with that child matters for eternity. Your interest in learning more about poverty and hope in the developing world is so encouraging. We are determined to never raise a white flag to the terror of poverty. We believe that every child is worth every effort to live a life released from poverty. We hope you share that passion and can join us soon at an event in your area.
