Circus Zambia is Zambia's first social circus. Found in 2015 by a group of young artist from a ghetto called Chibolya and a Dutch development worker, the company supports around 100 children. Gift, Amos and Benard grew up in Chibolya and experienced up close the devastating effects of growing up where drug/alcohol abuse and criminality are daily encounters . Their talent for acrobatics takes them around the world and in 2015 they decided to give young people from Chibolya a chance to become change makers. Since 2015 we have acquired our own property with a media lab, library, theatre, offices, classroom and training room. The Circus Zambia creative Hub. We have 3 programs; Body, Mind and Soul. In Body we engage youth in circus training. Circus teaches discipline, communication and trust, while having fun. Reaching goals and sharing your skills improves self-confidence. The Mind program provides tutoring, scholarships and educational circus camps and access to a library with over 800 books. In the Soul program we use circus to educate. We teach youth about things like HIV prevention, sanitation and entrepreneurship . Youth then make an educational circus show and become peer educators in their community. To ensure we can provide sustainable support we have an income generating wing. We provide entertainment and workshops national and internationally. This also offers youth a chance to earn a basic income. want to know more? Watch our CNN feature on youtube
