Together with three other entrepreneurs in 2016 Cirkus Unik won Reach for Change´s confidence, which was a decisive factor for our rapid and secure growth and that we now come in contact with and can make a difference for many more of Gothenburg’s children!
In May 2019 we got the opportunity to give a performance with duo acrobatics, energizer training and collaboration concept for the approximately 200 peppy participants at the Reach for Changes event “Partnering for Change” at the Photographic Museum in Stockholm, really successful!
Reach for Change is a Swedish non-profit organization that works for children’s right to a better life in all areas of 18 countries on three continents and reaches more than 100,000 children per year. In Sweden, the work is funded by the Kinneviks group. Reach for Change supports social entrepreneurs financially, but above all with advice, education, public relations and networks. Circus Unique among more than 300 other social entrepreneurs in 2015 sought the important and prestigious support from Reach for Change.
Feedback from Josefin Borglund, Program Manager Reach for Change
“With incredible passion and drive as a foundation, Cirkus Unik creates a positive change in children’s lives every day. Through Cirkus Unik, children are given access to a safe place to explore their talent, creativity and courage. All without any demands for performance, but with a focus on having fun and at the same time developing qualities like cooperation, self-esteem and respect.
The team that enables all this is made up of something similar to the perfect puzzle: a complementary set of individuals who, through their diverse backgrounds and expertise, deliver high quality both artistically and operationally. The founders, Elin and Jailton, possess an incredible ability to implement and have during the three years Reach for Change had the honor of following Cirkus Unik developed organization from an innovative idea to a well-oiled machinery filled with tools for power measurement, business management and administration.
Our 3 years of collaboration have been a fantastic fun trip and it will be exciting that how Cirkus Unik will continue to develop in the future! ”
