Pakistan's young stars of the big top

Help

Entertaining crowds in the big top is a difficult task, and takes years of practice. In Pakistan, some of the stars start out very young.

Trained by her father, four-and-a-half year-old Eisha is the third generation of her family to be part of the circus.

The children take part in the activities with members of their family until they are in their teens, in order to help pay off debts.
