Change the Story: The Compassion Experience Coming to Atlanta


Interactive Tour Immerses Visitors Into Daily Life in a Foreign Country
More than 1.4 billion people in developing countries live on less than $1.25 per day, facing challenges most Americans never will. Compassion International’s Change the Story: The Compassion Experience is making a five-day stop in the Atlanta area at the North Georgia State Fair September 20-24, and will bring visitors on a journey into the lives of three former Compassion-sponsored children from India, Uganda and Bolivia.


A 20-minute, self-guided tour will immerse visitors in the lives of one of the three children.




 Through the use of a personal iPod, a headset and over 3,100 square feet of interactive space, visitors will see the children’s homes, walk through schools and markets, and hear life-changing stories of hope—all from the perspective of a child whose life began in poverty. 



This free event is appropriate for all ages and is an excellent opportunity for anyone who has never had the chance to travel outside the U.S. to get a small glimpse of what life can be like in developing countries.


Visitors are encouraged to make a reservation by visiting Compassion.com/change, however walk-ins are welcome. 



Groups of 20 or more should email changetour@compassion.com to reserve their space. The cross-country tour will stop at more than 35 locations and travel 65,000 miles across the United States this year.
