CWB Partners with War Child Canada for another workshop-oriented project in Haiti as a part on an ongoing series of efforts to relieve extreme suffering in Haiti. See all projects in Haiti here.
The clowns will first perform with WCC camps in Jacmel, and then return to Port au Prince for concentrated teacher training workshops with youth leaders that work with the children War Child serves. The clowns will also be collaborating with trainers they have met and worked with from the organization Terre des Hommes.
The goal of this trip is to bring as many performances as possible, while also continuing to lay more sustainable foundations of clown, theatre and play training with local NGO leaders.
Our collaboration with War Child has come indirectly from our successful collaborations working with Terre des Hommes. Funding for the majority of this trip is directly from War Child Canada through larger funding they received from UNICEF.
