Performers Without Borders (PWB) are a circus charity that undertake tours of poorer parts of the world and bring circus workshops and shows to disadvantaged children.

Not only does this bring a lot of joy to the children PWB also use circus as a vehicle to communicate about social issues. PWB is a British charity but attract volunteer performers from all over the world.

This year PWB have three tours going on simultaneously; one in India, another in Nicaragua and a third in Sierra Leone.
