The September 28th stadium, the center stage of the recent civil unrest in Guinea now, hosts much more peaceful events.

Part of the complex is now turned into a rehearsal room with a mission. Here, children come everyday to learn acrobatics and transform their lives.


From a life on the streets to performances in the air and a better future.
In this poor West African nation, one in four children are at work and for many, home is on the streets.


Without support, they are exposed to violence, abuse and exploitation, including prostitution.
The association "Tinafan", supported by UNICEF, helps get them out the streets. Here they find a safe haven and counselling.

SOUNDBITE (French) Ibrahima Bamba, Head of Acrobat Centre
"They're happy, they come everyday here, I see some of them who became stars, they start constructing their lives, and it makes me very happy."

At the center, the children get comfort. And it starts with one full meal per day to help them keep in shape and thrive.

For children who dropped out or never went to school, the association also provides them with literacy and vocational training.

SOUNDBITE (French) Hadja Kade Sek, Tinafan Head Teacher
"They didn't have the chance to go to the real school with the other children, and now they're here, we also want them to learn a bit of what the others are learning on top of their performance as acrobats."

To help promote and protect the rights of street children, UNICEF has recently extended its support to this local organization to open a percussion academy.

Now, street children can also learn music, a very popular art in the West African nation and birthplace of the Djembe.

SOUNDBITE (French) Julien Harneis, UNICEF's Representative in Guinea
"The idea behind this is to build on what's strong in the Guinean culture itself, and try and find something that can have a worldwide reputation and get out of the village, the city and the country and show something exceptional."

The goal now is to build up partnerships with world renowned circuses to take this high wire act further and help children in Guinea fulfill their rights.
