Interactive exhibit about children living in poverty
The Compassion Experience, a free interactive exhibit featuring true stories of children living in poverty in developing countries like the Philippines, Kenya, Uganda and the Dominican Republic, will be on display Jan. 15-18 at Clovis Hills Community Church, 10590 N. Willow Ave., Clovis.
“In over 2,000 square feet of interactive exhibit space, visitors will step inside homes, markets and schools – without getting on a plane,” organizers say. “Each child’s story starts in poverty but ends in hope.”
