PWB teaches performing arts and circus skills to disadvantaged children and young adults, in the UK and around the world, in order to contribute to them gaining a more positive outlook and a better quality of life. This is based on a growing body of research expounding the benefits of learning circus skills and putting on performances.
We believe that to make lasting change in the lives of disadvantaged young people you have to do more than just make sure they have the basics. Through teaching performing arts skills we help orphans and vulnerable children to build confidence, become empowered, learn teamworking skills and overcome social barriers. At the same time they learn a great new lifetime hobby, or even a new profession, and they have some fun whilst doing it; all leading to a more general positive outlook and a better quality of life.
