Performers Without Borders work with vulnerable children in developing countries such as India, Nicaragua and Kenya. We are also starting operations in the UK with visually impaired young adults. We use performing arts and circus skills to develop confidence, empower and overcome social barriers as well as improve team work and improve learning and creativity.
PWB envisages a world where all children are able to realise their full potential, and have an understanding of different cultures, the complexity of development issues and the importance of personal action.
PWB will work with partners who engage with vulnerable children in their community to develop centres of performing arts around the world. These centres will act as a means by which international development issues are explored and cross cultural understanding is promoted.
Each year PWB send teams of skilled volunteers on tour to each of our 3 locations, to work with our partner organisations, teach new skills and improve upon skills previously learnt, connect with existing partnerships and look for new opportunities to spread our work and share our love for what we do, and to bring smiles and some light relief to people who often have difficult and troublesome lives and little access to the arts or entertainment.
We are developing operations in the UK with disadvantaged children, at first we are focusing on young adults with visual impairments.
