To ensure the programs are available to the local community, Circo de los Niños raises money to subsidize the cost of our professional instructors and daily operations.
The support of your donations helps us to keep the Circo accessible to every child wishing to register for classes and thus ensure that no child is refused. Your support also makes it possible to provide safe facilities for all, to ensure the quality of teaching and to create an optimal environment for the achievement and learning of our students.
The programs are conceived and inspired by Gilles and his wife Monique Voyer. Yet the sustainability of the project requires a well-rounded model in order to thrive and building a solid foundation of support is our current focus.
The real cost per student hovers around $5,000 pesos per cycle; therefore, we subsidize 80% of the student costs. Our goal is to build self-reliant young people who know it is possible to take action to follow a dream and while still maintaining affordable fees for many families who live in San Pancho and other Nayarit communities.
Every cycle we give away 20 scholarships to kids unable to afford the tuition, mainly local, thanks to our dreamcatcher sponsors.
