Summertime Circus


During the summer school holidays it is difficult for children living in Palestinian refugees camps to find safe spaces in which they can play. HOPING gave a grant to the summertime circus in Nablus which will run training for 50 children aged between 5 and 18 from Al-Ein, Balata and Al-Askar refugee camps over the summer months. The kids will have a chance to explore performance, the benefit of an active lifestyle, and build self confidence.  Each group of ten children will receive three formal training sessions per week, and will be encouraged to attend the circus training facilities outside of the formal workshops.
