What Will I See on a Tour of Compassion International?

Many of us never travel to impoverished countries. A tour of our Global Ministry Center brings the developing world to you. On our tour, you will:

  • Walk into a child development center that looks just like the ones in the many countries we serve. You'll see, hear and feel what children in our programs experience.

  • Discover the reality of poverty as you look inside a replica of a typical home in a developing country; impossibly small, humble and vulnerable, this home paints a picture of what children in need face each day.
  • Learn how we partner with thousands of local churches in developing countries to release children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty — all in the name of Jesus.
  • See how relationships are being built through letters — sponsored child to sponsor to sponsored child again.

  • Visit our distribution center, the second largest in Colorado Springs, to see how hundreds of thousands of letters are processed each year.
  • Enjoy colorful artwork and unique toys handmade by children at our church-led child development centers.
  • Understand what it means to step out of desperation and have hope come alive.
We Also Have a Free Summertime Activity for Families

During our free half-day interactive event held on select dates in June, July and August your family will:

  • Search for clean water, gather firewood and find materials for shelter as you learn about the daily struggles of children growing up in poverty.
  • Enjoy other activities including: playing with handcrafted toys and learning songs in other languages.
  • Meet children who are a part of our Child Sponsorship Program as you "visit" a Compassion-assisted child development center and share questions through a live video stream.
