Africa Soul Train Circus is an international circus company founded as a partnership between Ghana-born Mr. Fantastik and Canada-born Marley Huel, aka Marley Skye.

Inspired by each other’s visions to build circus schools for youth, Skye and Fantastik began creating a non-profit; Africa Soul Train Circus School. The first school will be built and run in Cape Coast, Ghana.

 As the school grows and funding increases, outreach centers will be established across Ghana, and then throughout Africa.” (www.astcsghana.org)

The circus troupe’s goal is to raise $20,000 by March 1, and then fly to Cape Coast to begin building the school. 

Land has been offered for them to develop in Ghana, and to secure the finances to build, they are searching for sponsors, as well as producing fundraising events
