„Circus Around the World”

They were split up into our different projects. Four of them were stationed at the Drop-In, another four at the CPDC and three were in charge of press related matters.
After the first week they decided what they wanted to achieve in the next month. Even though they had limited time everything turned out amazingly.
They produced a new video about our projects and they designed a new booklet. In addition, they started geography classes at the Drop-In center and made a mural of the world with the children. Last but not least they organized a breathtaking circus show with the children from the CPDC.
This was the highlight of an  incredible month. The great event took place at the end of October. Among the guests were many friends and benefactors of HHNFT as well as the Children of the Asian Education Center.
Before the excited Children could start to show, what they learned, the secretary of the Rotary Club Eastern Seaboard held a speech and asked for Khun Toy, Khun Ewald and Dr. Magret Deter, the President of the Rotary E-Club Dolphin Pattaya International, to come on stage. Khun Ewald was awarded with the Paul Harris Fellowship. After they all said a few words to the audience the guest turned their attention to the circus ring.
Two of the ProTeamers and a charming girl of the CPDC started the show and guided the audience through the program. The first showact was performed by the children from the Asian education center, who performed a small dance and sang for the guests. Also, children from the CPDC showed what they already learned. One of them sang a deeply moving ballade which brought tears in the eyes of some listeners. After that a group of girls performed a joyful dance.
Then the main part was about to start. The audience was delighted by the mind-blowing artistical acts of the children. They could see diabolos, juggling- and footballs flying through the air and children balance on rola bolas or doing pantomime. Other children performed with spinning plates, hula hoops or pois. A last part were children doing acrobatics. Every show act represented a different country which was pointed out with the music and the outfits of the artists.
The show was complemented by the great finale with all the children in the circus ring which was accompanied by a loud applause.
After this exhausting performance. Everyone could strengthen themselves at the buffet provided by the staff of HHNFT.
Unfortunately the day of the circus was also the last day of the ProTeamers. It was really sad to see them go! The children will miss them dearly and they will always be welcome here! A thousand “Thank Yous” to them all we wish them only the best.
