Clowns Without Borders International chapters offer laughter to relieve the suffering of all persons, especially children, who live in areas of crisis including refugee camps, conflict zones and territories in situations of emergency.
We bring levity, contemporary clown/circus oriented performances and workshops into communities so that they can celebrate together and forget for a moment the tensions that darken their daily lives.
We aim to provide emotional relief to children. Underscoring this objective are four points of focus:
To perform for as many children as possible and bring laughter and healing for a brief moment in their lives.
Connections with organizations
To establish connections with local grassroots organizations and international organizations that are working to alleviate the suffering of communities.
To connect local performers to these organizations so that celebrations of laughter can continue on a more frequent basis after the expedition is over.
Resilience through laughter
Share and give more visibility to the communities we visited
