SIERRA LEONE VILLAGE for WORLD VISION UK ‘Modular Mud Huts for Touring Exhibition’
projectmanager - June 2010
Following the huge success in America of World Vision’s experiential exhibition where they created an entire village for the public to take a journey through the lives of kids in Sierra Leone, World Vision came to us to re-create a smaller version to tour around the UK.
The plight of children in Sierra Leone & World Vision’s idea of directly sponsoring a child was to be the focus of our experiential exhibition.
At the start of their journey, the consumer collects their MP3 player which then guides them through a very real story of a child’s life in Sierra Leone.

Timber Panels With Idendon Coating & paint effect finish give the impression of mud walling, a Brush Wood Roof completes the authentic look.
During the interactive journey the consumer begins in the first hut which shows an insight into how many people live in Sierra Leone, consumers are able to see, smell and feel the every day items they have to use to cook, sleep and wash.
As the story continues consumers move into the second hut which gives an insight into how families are living after receiving the help and support of World Vision and its donaters. It is here that we see there are beds, wood burning stoves, tables and mosquito nets.

At the end of the experience consumers leave the last hut through a tunnel of postcards telling stories of other children needing sponsorship.
This build was another huge success with World Vision. The tour is still ongoing with it being installed in Newbury on the 16/09/2010
