Allocation of funds

<p><strong>THE PROJECT </strong></p> <p>In October and November of 2019, we will develop the project &quot;Circus of Silence,&quot; which consists of offering artistic dance and circus courses in 3 big cities of Bolivia: Santa Cruz, Cochabamba, and Tarija, gathering a total of 500 participants.</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>We will be present for one week in each city. The idea is to develop a space for the transmission of knowledge, as well as a space for creation in order to make a final presentation.The beneficiaries of this project will be deaf adolescents and adults.</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>Our goal is to favor social inclusion, and promote self-esteem and social union within families and communities through artistic practices. As it is a non-profit project, the foundation will deal with internal expenses, but we are looking for support to finance the cost of air travel.</p> <p><strong>Flight Cost : BCN - La Paz : 915&euro;/pers</strong> (sky scanner)</p> <p><strong>If we get&nbsp;more money</strong>, we&#39;ll invest in intern cost and buy new material.</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>We hope to make this beautiful project a reality and to continue our mission. Your help is indispensable, and we thank you for your interest.</p> <p><em>Photos Credit : Impulso del silencio during activities in 2017/19.</em></p>
