The social circus program set in motion in 1995, Cirque du Monde is one of the greatest sources of pride for Cirque du Soleil. Since its creation, this program is now implanted in more than 56 countries throughout the world in partnership with many local community organizations recognized in their milieu for the quality of their work with young people. Cirque du Monde does not claim to be a cure-all for the various social problems, but neither is it some vague pastime that only succeeds in distracting young people from their real situation.
