Circo del Mundo
This description of Alejandra Jimenez's work was prepared when Alejandra Jimenez was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2016.
Alejandra is using circus to prepare children and youth to be active citizens. She engages youth from multiple communities in Chilean society, especially those with little or no education in cultural activities. She uses the excitement of the circus to involve the body and mind of children in a wide range of skills and activities which enable them to achieve a sense of self-respect and accomplishment.
