Compassion Experience Simulates Life in Third World Countries; End Negative Self-Talk at Free Event

 

 

Here’s what’s happening Today in the 914, according to Westchester Woman:

1.) The Compassion Experience is coming to Yorktown.  You’ve see the commercials of starving children overseas, and you feel for them. Maybe you’ll even sent them a donation. But have you ever wondered what it’s really like to live in poverty on a daily basis in a developing country like Philippines, Kenya, Uganda or the Dominican Republic?

The Compassion Experience will allow visitors to experience this in an interactive exhibit that allows visitors to step inside a simulated home, market and school. The exhibit is set to a narrative told by a child living in those circumstances and shows how they go from a life of poverty to a life of hope.

The Compassion Experience is run by the Christian organization Compassion International and does show how faith affects the lives of each of the children’s true stories, as it made a significant impact on their ability to escape poverty. However, people of all faiths are welcome.

“We want all our guests to feel comfortable and welcome because it’s our goal to increase awareness in each community about the realities of extreme poverty and the difference we all have the opportunity to make,” their website says.

You can check out the Compassion Experience in Yorktown Heights at the Jefferson Valley Mall Friday, June 17 through Tuesday, June 21 from noon to 7:40 p.m. Get more details at cts.compassion.com
