Journey of Hope
This Summer, take a trip to West Africa at the heart of Croydon
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.
