Description

International children’s charity World Vision UK’s award-winning ‘Journey of Hope’ exhibition is coming to Tunbridge Wells’ Royal Victoria Place Shopping Centre next week.The unique and stimulating installation, which runs until 17 June, offers a free interactive experience. Visitors will learn about World Vision’s transformational work with some of the most vulnerable children across the globe.

Two life-size huts situated right in the heart of Tunbridge Wells recreate the family home of Sierra Leonean mother Miatta and her 8-year-old daughter, Ayie. The first hut depicts the family’s struggles 15 years ago, while the second shows how the family are thriving after working with World Vision.

The installation is fully interactive and tactile. Visitors are transported into the lives of the family for a few minutes, away from televisual depictions of poverty and into an experience that makes it easier to connect with Miatta and Ayie’s story. They will see how World Vision helps Miatta set up her own business – enabling her to grow food for the family, and for Ayie to go to school instead of having to help her mother with manual labour.
