Run away with the circus!

Twenty spectacular international circus performers on a special mission will be on Samui in late January to teach children, showcase their talent and share their unusual story. jo SPARK! is  a group of dedicated volunteer performers who have come together for the last seven years to bring joy to groups of disadvantaged children in refugee camps, migrant schools, hospitals and orphanages along the Thai Burmese border.

SPARK! will offer workshops on Samui for children, and a fundraising show for the Samui community.

The show will be held at Bandara Resort and Spa, Samui on 27th January at 18:30pm and will include a finger buffet and a unique circus performance.

There will be a cash bar, wines available at special rates, and music into the night, as well as a silent auction with great prizes to raise funds.

This is a great opportunity to meet these dedicated and energetic young performers, and be part of the community who supports their efforts.

B500 includes welcome drink, dinner and a raffle ticket for a lucky draw.  

Please note places are limited. You can preregister by sending your name, number of tickets you’d like to book by sms to +66818921180 to ensure your attendance. You can also email to

SPARK!’s mission every year is to lighten the days of over 4,000 children with magic and wonder, laughter and smiles with circus-style fire show, playshops and donations of toys, art supplies, and creative tools.
SPARK! is completely volunteer based, and is funded entirely by donation and community support. Many of the performers pay for their own expenses, and raise funds in their own communities for equipment.

Over 200,000 refugees line the borders of Thailand and Burma, held in refugee camps that can barely manage to provide for basic necessities. Tens of thousands of these refugees are children - children who have been traumatized by the ongoing war waged by the Burmese military dictatorship against the regions hill-tribes. Here they end up in the camps or living illegally along the border regions, at huge risk of being taken into the sex trade, suffering malnourishment and other ongoing threats to their well being and lives. In addition to basic necessities like shelter, clothes, food and education, children also need hope, joy and play.
Your donation will help light the SPARK!

This project is designed to develop the children’s creativity, physical fitness, communication skills, teamwork, confidence and cultural awareness. Play is a fundamental part of children’s development and this will bring a big spark of happiness, love, amusement and entertainment into these children's lives and the lives of those who work with them in the camps and orphanages.
Your participation and generous involvement will help spread the joy and ignite the imagination!
