"Step Into My Shoes" is a fun, fast-paced, interactive event that will take place on select dates in June, July and August from 9 a.m. to noon at the Compassion Global Ministry Center in Colorado Springs.
During this FREE half day event your family will:
Experience a day in the life of a child being released from poverty.
As you search for clean water, gather firewood and find materials for shelter, your family will begin to learn about the daily basic struggles of children growing up in poverty.
Work, play, and learn in an interactive environment.
Basic survival and daily life activities are only half the experience, other activities include: playing with handcrafted toys and learning songs in other languages.
Meet children who are a part of Compassion's program.*
Through a live video stream, you and your family will also "visit" a Compassion child development center, share questions, and interact with the children whose lives are being transformed.
* This is a first-time event for Compassion. As we are attempting to connect with children in a developing country - the live video stream may not occur due to unforeseen circumstances and/or technical difficulties.
