With just one week remaining before the new building’s grand opening, Circus Zambia is electrified with news that His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, will be cutting the opening ceremony ribbon on November 27. As President of The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, a platform which helps young people from vulnerable backgrounds in Lusaka with life skills, Prince Harry will also be giving a speech.
Circus Zambia is a youthful and vibrant social circus company that equips young people from vulnerable backgrounds with circus and life skills while providing educational and employment opportunities to enable these young people to blossom and become change makers in their community. In Lusaka, Zambia, one of the most underdeveloped areas of Sub-Saharan Africa, the circus works with 5,000 children and runs weekly training sessions to work directly with 60 children-at-risk from the slum of Chibolya.
4240 Architecture was happy to work with Circus Zambia to imagine their goals and bring those ideas to life in their new facility, pictured below.
