Compassion International’s Change the Story: The Compassion Experience is coming to the Tucson area – May 15-18, 2015!
The free interactive tour invites visitors on a journey into the lives of four children living in Uganda, Bolivia, Kenya, and the Philippines.
Through the use of an iPod, a headset, and over 4,000 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 USA to get a small glimpse of what life can be like in developing countries.
Visitors are encouraged to make a reservation, however walk-ins are welcome. Groups of 20 or more should email [email protected] to reserve their space.
Plan to be at the exhibit for about an hour (or longer).

- NOTES: If you have toddlers/preschoolers, note that “older kids generally get more out of the experience in terms of being able to understand what they are seeing, but parents do bring their younger kids through frequently. There are plenty of things to see and touch. Child-friendly audio tracks are available, which soften any more intense parts of the stories for younger visitors.”
