Sponsor a child, change a life

« Inspiring kids for life »


Every child needs to have undivided attention once in a while to feel special

With “Sponsor A Child” we want the child to feel that way. They know that their godparents will care about them and that they are interested in their development. This will give the kids even more motivation to be part of Zip Zap and to reach for their dreams.

Zip Zap Circus is a social circus that was founded in Cape Town in 1992, to inspire young people and help build a new culture of peaceful coexistence in South Africa. We bring together kids from different walks of lives. Some are more privileged than others but at Zip Zap they are all the same. Zip Zap helps kids to ‘dare to dream’ and learn to make those dreams a reality. Zip Zap’s programs are all free to participants, with financial and material support coming from individuals, organization, corporations and foundations.


If you sponsor a child, we will use your money in this way
