Compassion Canada is currently working with our global partners to find the best ways to open up travel again to the countries that we work. We appreciate your patience while we take into consideration the safety and security of the children and their families we work with. Once in-person travel resumes, we will remove this message and start taking requests.

If you have any questions, please contact the Field Experience team at 1-800-563-5437 or

What is an Exposure Trip?

You’ve seen the pictures. You’ve written the letters. But now, you’re ready for something more. Compassion Exposure Trips allow you to step into an intercultural experience alongside a group of other travellers. You will explore the home country of the child you sponsor—learning from people in their community and experiencing the local food, games, language and more. You will also have the opportunity to meet the child you sponsor face-to-face and deliver that next letter in person! Please be sure to visit this page to learn what makes Compassion Exposure trips unique and for more information about what you will experience on your trip. Not interested in attending a planned trip? You can meet your child on a Custom Visit!
