Your donation helps us bring JOY to children on the Thai / Burmese border
We are an international team of circus performers and dancers, coming together to bring JOY to refugee and migrant children on the Thai/ Burmese border.
Burma has been in a state of civil war for over 60 years with generations of ethnic Burmese having fled to Thailand. It is reported that in 2014 there were 130,000 refugees in camps, half a million stateless people, hundreds of thousands of migrants with temporary work permits, and countless undocumented workers who fled persecution and war. It is estimated that children and youth make up 50% of these figures.
This year, we will be visiting hundreds of children, with exciting circus shows, playshops, and FUN-filled activities. Alongside the usual project, we will be running a ‘Training the trainers’ program. In this program, we will be teaching 3 senior students from each school/ organization to facilitate circus play-shops themselves in their schools. We believe that it’s important to hand over the skills and help them facilitate their own play based learning. This year, we will do this, with your help!
With your help, we will also continue to support Green School by supplying them with clean water and transport to get to and from school.
