With Circus Effect we want to see a world where all children and youth of war have a happy life and enrich the society they are part of. We are working on spreading well-being with social circus of the youngest ones because we believe that their resilience, hope and joy is our future in this world.

We are a continuous part of children’s life, who are affected by war. We are established within the local communities and our implementation is not temporary, we are always there as a companion.

We are:

  • preparing training material and providing with practical information how to implement social circus activities especially in war zones;
  • working on methodology, processes as well as network to multiply social circus activities and impact;
  • administrating a web portal to engage stakeholders into social circus projects;
  • creating a social network and communication platform for refugee and displaced youth practicing social circus;
  • creating mobile application to connect social circus actors
  • training joy-makers who want to establish their own initiatives and continue the effort to rediscover and spread joy in the war torn region.
