Circus Zambia believes education is the gateway to brighter futures and allows youths to develop into engaged and critical thinkers. Therefore we provide opportunities for youth from marginalized backgrounds to finish and excel in secondary school. Circus Zambia only provides support to youth who are actively engaged in the Body Program.
Each year Circus Zambia selects youth for its scholarship program. Selection is done based on their commitment to Circus Zambia and their home situation. In collaboration with the parents or caregivers, Circus Zambia pays for school fees, and if necessary, tutoring, uniforms, books etc. Throughout the year the progress of the students is mentored.
But the Mind Program doesn’t end when schools do! The program includes educational camps held during holidays in order to keep youth engaged and interested. It also includes group tutoring activities that take place at Circus Zambia, such as math tutoring done by older Circus Zambia members and pen pal activities with international students to improve English language proficiency.
We also have a library and media lab available for our youth. The Mind Program is supported by Fundraising Efforts of Circus Zambia Friends. Are you interested in supporting Circus Zambia? Donate here .
