MONTHLY REPORT OCTOBER 2011
In October, Performing Life youth put on performances throughout Cochabamba, where hundreds of people were able to appreciate the multi-faceted skills of the Circus Arts Groups and Hip Hop K’ayma Project.
We are pleased to announce that a the Rotary Clubs of Cochabamba and Temecula, CA have partnered to raise funding to support our cafeteria program, providing a healthy meal each day for youth who come to the classes. This program will also create jobs for several of the mothers, further improving family sustainability. Thank you to all who have worked so hard for over a year to bring about this international collaboration.
The volunteers’ hard work is producing some great results. Christina’s photography workshops will create an exposition of youth photos in December. Molly Robbins finished a short promotional video for the Smokey Mountain Juggling Festival, held early in October. Proceeds from the festival purchased much-needed, new juggling materials for our Circus Arts Projects and attracted attention from the International Juggling Federation.
