Clowns Without Borders collaboration with People's Educational Theatre in Swaziland (SVT)

Clowns Without Borders collaborated with People's Educational Theatre in Swaziland to develop local capacity for psychosocial arts interventions for children and guardians affected by HIV/AIDS. In 2010, we received funding from Breadline Africa for Project Vuka Mphakathi (Awakening Community) in order to train artists from PET and other organisations in our intervention methods. Below is a wonderful documentary by Edward Morgan about our first 2 weeks doing artistic training and performances in Mbabane.
