VILLAGE OF HOPE
Village of Hope is an immersive experience created by World Vision to tell an engaging story of 12-year-old Isata and her family in rural Sierra Leone. The interactive experience gives shoppers a glimpse into the home of Isata and her family before and after the support of World Vision. A mud hut depicts life before, as Isata and her family struggled with poverty. Alongside that, a concrete structure reveals life now, following support from World Vision.
Rural Sierra Leone is also bought to life through interactive experiences which gives a deeper understanding of real life for many poverty-stricken communities around the world. A water station gives the opportunity to pump water at the fully working water pump and feel the weight of a 25-litre jerry can. In addition, visitors can visualise the daily hardship of the children through a virtual reality experience.
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 Isata, you will help World Vision in their mission for each child to grow healthy, educated, cared for and protected.
Visit Village of Hope today and see how you can change the lives of children around the world.
