INVOLVEMENTS WITH THE COMMUNITIES
Hiccup Circus Uganda’s outreach partners are organizations working with at-risk communities / youth in difficulty or into schools. HCU has been showcased in different locations, in Kampala and upcountry, so people can more easily access the programs… there is no cost so there are no barriers for anyone to attend the performances freely and have fun with education.
