ABOUT DAVID MASON:
For David Mason, laughter is an antidote to war. Social Circus, he believes, is as much a part of Afghanistan’s national reconstruction as roads, water, and hospitals.

In 2002, he founded the Mobile Mini Circus for Children, (www.MMCCglobal.org) which is now a world’s leading Social Circus organization. The transformative power of Social Circus connects education, physical art and social development to teach being happy, enthusiastic, meaningful and positive social individuals. MMCC’s pedagogy, workshops and arts have benefited millions of children, alone their live educational performances have had 3.6 million audience in 28 provinces all over Afghanistan. Games and circus arts are a tools for teaching social skills, overcoming trauma and developing essential capacities and the ability to take responsibility. Through Social Circus performances, essential messages such as health, landmine awareness, peace and importance of education are effectively delivered to millions of children.
