Federal Way-based World Vision is offering free trips to Africa this summer from the back of a semi-truck. The first of its kind multimedia mobile experience, Kisongo Trek takes visitors on a 15-minute bus ride down the roads of Tanzania. While on the interactive bus tour, visitors experience life through the eyes of 13-year-old Babayetu and his community in Kisongo, Tanzania.
The mobile exhibit will be making seven stops in Washington in August and September. Launched in March, Kisongo Trek has virtually transported thousands across the continental U.S. to experience life in another country.
