The “International Syrian Circus” was set up by ten young adults from Syria to alleviate the boredom they felt whilst at Za’atari. They want clowns to be in their circus so they asked if we could help. Of course, we said yes. We delivered 5 days of clown training to the “International Syrian Circus”. There was an important cascade element to this project as our participants shared our games and activities, via regular workshops, with up to 100 children living in the camp over the year.
