Hi, I'm Zuleika and I am a theatre and circus performer with a background in performance and creative education.
I'm fundraising for the Esther Benjamin Turst. I'll be volunteering with Circus Kathmandu at the Sapana Social Circus Programme. The project comprises children and young people rescued from Indian circuses as well as former street children and the dependents of prisoners. Many of the children expressed a desire to continue working with their circus skills and this an opportunity for them to develop creative confidence and forge fulfilling careers.
The young people receive high quality training in circus, theatre and technical skills but within a social circus framework. This framework aims to empower the young people through games and creative activities focused on building social and personal tools such as confidence, self-esteem, self-expression, self-awareness and teamwork.
