Partners in Sustainable Development International (PSDI) is planning an old fashioned
Bangladesh Street Circus in and around Cardwell’s in Clayton on October 5, 2013.
Virginia Klein, Executive Director of the organization, said that the traveling circus has a long
tradition in Bangladesh thrilling the young and old alike with acrobats, contortionists, stiltwalkers,
wire acts and more. In honoring that tradition at our annual fundraiser, we hope to
rekindle the happy memories of childhood while securing a happier childhood for the thousands
of destitute children in the rural villages we serve.
PSDI is a 501 (c) 3 organization that empowers the rural poor in Bangladesh to permanently end
their own poverty by empowering them to devise creative solutions to their own problems and
partnering with them to make those solutions a reality.
Operating in rural Bangladesh since 1987, more than 100,000 one-meal-a-day families have been
helped to realize their dream of financial independence by learning marketable skills in one of 10
economic development programs. Last year 51 schools opened to welcome 1560 primary grade
students for the first time. Monies raised this year will help build more schools and provide basic
emergency needs to 14,000 new families.
The Bangladesh Street Circus will be from 7-10 pm on Saturday night, October 5, 2013 at
Cardwell’s in Clayton. The cost is $75 per adult and $50 for young adults 18-35 years.
Complimentary tickets for the Press.
