"Volunteering with circus Kathmandu means being part of a fast moving, dynamic project, a culturally fascinating experience, challenges and rewards by the dozen, and encounters and friendships that will touch your heart and stay in your memory after you’ve returned back home! The Sapana group is an amazing bunch of young people to work with – talented, positive, curious and a joy to teach. I worked so hard while I was out there because I knew they would receive every bit of my energy and effort, and would benefit from it. This project for them is a chance for a better life, for me and for other volunteers, it gives a satisfying chance to use our skills directly to positive effect and to learn a lot too. I also had loads of fun and saw some of this beautiful country" - Maddie McGowan

"Working with Circus Kathmandu was life changing. I marvelled at that these young adults who in spite of difficult and sometimes horrific pasts expressed positive energy at all times. We laughed together so much! Not only did the young troupe express positivism, resilience and enthusiasm but they were also capable of being technical and artistic circus super stars. Circus Kathmandu are a joy!" - Wendy Regan
