Experience Compassion in Irvine this May!

The Compassion Experience at Irvine Onnuri

Mobile Experience-2

Change the Story will bring you as close to another country and culture as you can get without a passport. This interactive, immersive display allows you to step into the life of a child who has suffered under the crippling weight of poverty.

But the journey does not end there.

In the span of less than 30 minutes, you will travel with that child from hardship to hope. And in the midst of hope, you will see that child’s story transformed through the support of Compassion and the child’s life-giving relationship with a sponsor.

Saturday, May 17: 7:00AM – 8:00PM
Sunday, May 18: 8:40AM – 6:00PM

Meal Time at a Compassion Center in India

Meal-Time-Compassion-India

 

Compassion’s work in India began in 1968. Currently, more than 131,500 children participate in 567 child development centers. Compassion partners with churches to help them provide Indian children with the opportunity to rise above their circumstances and become all God has created them to be.

The story of Brinda is currently featured at Change the Story: The Compassion Experience — an immersive, international event touring the US in 2014. Brinda grew up in poverty in India, and through the support of a Compassion sponsor and a local church, saw her life transformed.

You can step into Brinda’s daily life in India — without leaving the US. You’ll  journey with her from poverty to hope at The Compassion Experience. It’s free and appropriate for all ages.

The Impact of Sponsorship on Education

If you have visited Change the Story: The Compassion Experience, you may have walked through the story of Julian Alum — a Compassion graduate who began life in the slums of Uganda, and recently completed her master’s degree in social work from Baylor University. Julian’s remarkable transformation was enabled in part by the support of her sponsors — a family from Oregon who gave a little bit every month to change a child’s future.

Independent research has now confirmed the impact that Compassion’s sponsorship program has on education:

Sponsored children are 50-80% more likely to complete a university education than non-sponsored children.

Favorite Photos

Change the Story: The Compassion Experience currently features the true life stories of three kids growing up in the developing-world countries of India, Uganda and Bolivia. Each child’s story starts in poverty but ends in hope, thanks to the support provided through the Compassion sponsorship program and the impact of a local church.

These are some of our favorite recent photos from life in and around Compassion centers in these countries.

You can step into the daily life of a Compassion-sponsored child at The Compassion Experience — an immersive event coming to select communities in the US in 2014. Click here to see where we’ll be next!
