The Final Feliz project combines elements of social circus and education to offer underprivileged children and at-risk youth a chance to get off of the streets and get involved in their community.


Although void of drug-trafficking, the community is affected by truancy and absent parents. The Happy Ending project uses social activities to aid 150 children and youth ages 2-21 daily in becoming responsible citizens. The project also targets parents helping them become more conscientious of their parenting methods. These transformations benefit the community by strengthening families and promoting cultural education. More circus equipment is needed to better serve the community.


The project uses elements of social circus such as acrobatics and clowning to engage participants in activities that remove them from a cycle of truancy. Participants also perform and attend cultural events both inside and outside of their community.

Long-Term Impact

The project aims to fortify families and reduce truancy rates by offering structured social circus activities and classes that will help build more than 150 participants’ self-esteem making them better citizens and more dedicated students.
