      What is Zip Zap Circus School?

      Zip Zap is a circus school in Cape Town, mother city of South Africa. The
      school doors are open since 1992 to all youth regardless of background,
      culture, gender or financial status. The school is free of charge to all
      students. Using circus as a social tool Zip Zap aims at bringing children
      together in a safe and fun environment. Circus skills as well as technical
      training (woodwork, sewing, rigging, prop building and repairs) will help
      them embark on a path of sustainable living.
      But, more importantly, life values such as team work, discipline, trust,
      confidence and honesty will enable these children to become responsible
      adults.

      Zip Zap has been running various outreach programmes since 1994 with street
      children, rural children, and school children. In 2005, their outreach
      programme focused on children living with HIV and receiving ARV treatment at
      the Nolungile clinic in Khayelitsha, the biggest township of Cape Town,
      project on partnership with Cirque du Monde and Médecins Sans Frontières.

      In 2009, the City of Cape Town entered into a partnership with Zip Zap to
      extend their outreach programme to street kids living in shelters. The
      programme has been inspired by "Second Chance," the success story of the
      author Judy Westwater, who survived her youth in the streets.
