Acrobats from Rwanda
Let us take you to Gisenyi, a Rwandan town at the border with Congo. It’s the home of Future Vision Acrobats, a group that not only performs across Rwanda but also helps children in difficult situations.
Elisée Niyonsenga, a 27 year old man, lost his mother and siblings in the Rwandan genocide of 1994 and lived as a street child for a while. He taught himself acrobatics as a teenager and founded a circus group. Now he teaches the sport to children like him in the Future Vision Acrobats group and helps them to find new hope.
2SER’s Sarka Pechova caught up with the acrobats in Rwanda.
