Haley Birdyshaw, a supervisor in our contact center, took a group of employees on an exposure trip to Guatemala. The trip was a life-changing experience.

Many had never traveled outside of the United States, let alone experienced extreme poverty first-hand. As a result, their perspectives changed from “I answer questions on the phone” to “I make a difference in the life of a child.”

    I know what you mean! As an advocate for Compassion Canada, my trip to Colombia has really helped me when telling people about Compassion because I was able to see the results and work first hand.
