How can I plan a "group" visit to BD409 project in Bangladesh? I have just returned from a Bangladesh trip with my church and we visited the church group's villages and it was a wonderful experience. My child was brought to me in Dhaka from her village (7 hr bus ride for her and her mother and staff member). I am very grateful to Compassion for arranging this, but I want to go to her village and visit with her, do a home visit, speak with her teacher, etc. If this village has over 150 children sponsored, would it possibly have a tour scheduled at some time in the future? Thank you

Hi Mary! You are welcome to request another custom visit and we would be happy to setup a visit to your child's project or village.
The decision as far as which projects we visit on a Group Tour is not necessarily based on how many children are sponsored at a particular project. The purpose of a group tour is to give sponsors a big picture view of what the culture of that country is like, what Compassion does in a variety of contexts, and have the opportunity of meeting their sponsored child. This is why we have our field staff decide which projects we will visit. They know their culture and how Compassion works in their country.
