Juggling circus duties with life struggles in Ethiopia

Al Jazeera visits circus school in Addis Ababa offering hope to unprivileged children.

    As part of its efforts to reach UN-mandated millennium goals, Ethiopia has had great success in recent years in dropping child mortality rates and increasing the number of school enrollers. 

    The country has also sustained solid economic growth. But, millions of people still live in poverty.

    Al Jazeera's Charles Stratford visits a circus training school in Addis Ababa that's working to build a brighter future for the city's children.
