Location / Link:
Brighton’s Jubilee Square will be visited by the Compassion Experience on 13–14 April. This 70-foot mobile trailer, created by child development charity Compassion UK, is a great way for people to experience the sights, sounds and smells of a developing country. This family-friendly experience will give visitors an insight into what life is like for some of the most vulnerable children in the world.
The trailer houses the interactive, tactile, audio and visual stories of Sameson, a boy from Ethiopia, and Shamim, a girl from Uganda. Both Sameson and Shamim grew up experiencing the vulnerability, restrictions, and dangers that poverty brings in their respective cultures and contexts.
In more than 2,000 square feet of interactive exhibit space, visitors will step inside homes, schools and markets — without getting on a plane. Each child’s story starts in poverty but ends in hope.
The event is completely free, and open to members of the public. Booking is not compulsory, but if preferred, advance bookings can be made at: https://experience.compassionuk.org/experiences/book/37/
Compassion UK is an international child development charity with more than 60 years’ experience of working with some of the world’s poorest children. At present nearly 2 million children attend Compassion’s church-based projects in 25 of the world’s poorest countries.
