Social Circus Myanmar 2017-18 project work has already begun, and I'm not even there yet (Jules) Ko Pho Ke and Julien Ariza help the S4SK team rehearse for a show at a Children's Rights day. They needed some more props to work with and we took them round and helped with rehearsals.

We are looking forward to returning to Myanmar in November 2017 to work through to March/April 2018.

We are moving all activities to Social Circus Myanmar http://socialcircusmyanmar.com/ website. This facebook page will continue, but it now it links to http://socialcircusmyanmar.com/ website rather than seriousfunglobal.

Social Circus Myanmar is now run by Social Circus International http://socialcircusinternational.com/ a not-for-profit private limited company set up in UK. This new set-up hopefully allows us to apply for funding more widely.

We are gathering donations of used and no-longer-needed circus equipment in the UK in order to ship it to Myanmar. If you have some props we can arrange pick-up so it won't cost you anything to donate your pre-loved and unwanted juggling props.
Just PM me or comment if you have anything - thanks.

Lots of love and Best Wishes,
Jules
