Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ Save The Children of Japan is organizing a meeting on December 22 at “Od” cinema, in cooperation with “Lifetime Education” national center, on the report of their implementation of “Socializing Circus” program in Mongolia.

Canada’s “Cirque du Soleil” (Circus of the Sun) Group has set up unique methodologies for improving social communication and personal skills of children who are living in unfavorable condition, and has been implementing target programs in 56 countries since 1995. Save The Children applied these methodologies to its actions and started implementing similar programs in Mongolia in 1999.

More than 70 specialists from over 30 state and non-governmental organizations that provide child protection and education services had received trainings in Mongolia and abroad on how to mobilize the objectives of this program. Thanks to the socializing circus program, child protection conditions have been improved for over 10 thousand children in need, who are from charity center of Save The Children, public childcare centers, 411th disciplinary unit, unofficial education centers, public dormitories and the kids with disabilities in herdmen’s families.
