This free event features an interactive journey through the true stories of children living in developing countries. Visitors step into the homes, markets, and schools of these children – without having to travel. Each child’s story starts in poverty, but ends in hope!


What is The Compassion Experience?

The Compassion Experience is a landmark presentation visiting churches, schools, and other venues across the country. The experience immerses guests in the reality of daily life in poverty that millions of children face around the world. It brings visitors into cultures completely outside of their own. Most importantly, the Experience presents the blessing of hope as children are sponsored through Compassion’s world-class child development program.

The Compassion Experience is housed in one Compassion-branded gooseneck trailer. When deployed in a parking lot, 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 program. Each guest is equipped with an iPod Touch and headphones to guide them through the Experience. At the end of the tour, guests enter a World Impact Room where they can view photos and information about children of all ages who are waiting for sponsors. As God leads, guests have the opportunity to sponsor one (or more!) of these precious children on the spot.
