Journey of Hope

This spring, take a trip to West Africa at the heart of Tunbridge Wells.

 

Journey of Hope is an immersive experience created by World Vision to tell an engaging story of 8-year-old Ayie and her mother Miatta in rural Sierra Leone. Journey of Hope is formed of two large huts, which are dressed to replicate Ayie and her mother’s real home, to give you a glimpse into their everyday life, and how your help and support through World Vision will significantly change their lives and community.

World Vision is the world’s largest international children charity, and for more than 60 years, every day we bring real hope to millions of children in the world’s hardest places as a sign of God’s unconditional love. Through sponsoring a child like Ayie in Sierra leone, you will help World Vision in their mission for each child to grow healthy, educated, cared for and protected.

Visit Journey of Hope today and see how you can change the lives of children around the word.

"Regina has been alone since the death of her parents" | Coping with stigma in Sierra Leone

Wednesday 06, Jul, 2016

11-year-old Regina sits in front of her small mud house, wearing a colourful yellow dress that stands out against the grey backdrop.

It has been just over a year since her parents died and Regina remembers that time as if it were yesterday…
