Circus brings splash of colour to Afghanistan

In a dusty city of grey concrete blast walls where there’s not always much to smile about, the organisers of a children’s circus try to provide a splash of colour and some moments of joy.

 

The Kabul-based Mobile Mini-Circus for Children (MMCC) was founded in Afghanistan in 2002, months after the fall of the hardline Taliban Islamic regime which banned music and dance.

 

Fewer than one million children — and no girls — attended school nationwide at the time.

 

While other NGOs and government agencies focused on food, shelter and education, MMCC (www.afghanmmcc.org) strove to introduce “soft” values bringing children together to foster a more joyful atmosphere despite frequent hardship.

 

“It’s a special circus,” said founder David Mason, a former salsa and tango dance instructor from Denmark.

 

“It’s a circus to educate, give meaning to life, make children happy, make them dream and realise their dreams and gain self-confidence and inspiration.”

Professional adult artists tour and perform for children across the war-torn country.
