In October 2016, Clowns Without Borders Australia has been in the Solomon Islands under a partnership with Mothers Union and Plan International Australia. They have facilitated workshops with young women from the Girls friendly Society, which is a group supported by Mothers Union International. The workshops focused on empowering the girls to become leaders in their communities, through teaching circus skills, teamwork activities, dance, discussion and giving them an opportunity to perform in their local communities. The clowns had the most wonderful time facilitating a safe and supportive environment while the girls explore themes such as what it means to be a strong woman, how to trust, support and listen to one another. The tour took in 6 locations, including church halls, grass paddocks and schools.
