This spotlight is taking us around the world to a group of clowns, musicians, dancers, performances and anyone who likes to play! Their purpose? They work with refugee families who are living in harsh environments to create a sense of normalcy in the kids lives. They do music, circus, art, dance, cinema, puppet-making, pizza-decorating - anything that they can muster up.
“We do anything we can think of to give them an opportunity to feel good and to feel daft and to feel playful.”
Over 100,000 child refugees came to Europe in 2016 and Ash and his team are traveling around these camps to have some fun with the children.
“Our futures are the dreams we have as kids turned into reality. I want them to feel like they can do anything.”
The power of play and importance of happiness and pure joy must never be underestimated. This group of true heroes has set out on a mission, and by returning some of this joy to the lives of these kids, they are undoubtedly helping them cope with their uncertain future.
