Description

Photo and video presentation of Anna Zastrow’s trip to Thailand and Cambodia, and of Olivia Lehrman’s CWB team expedition to Haiti.

Come experience what we’ve been up to and see the kids in action!

Contribute to the upcoming project: Clowning with youngsters in Indonesia!

Here’s your chance to get in on the game and be part of a wonderful humanitarian venture.

In November Anna will travel to Indonesia to join Clowns Without Borders partner Dan Roberts, and, together with an Indonesian musician, we will bring laughter and excitement to kids in homeless shelters, community centers and schools in Jakarta and in the Aceh region, where many children are suffering psychological trauma from the 2004 tsunami and years of civil strife.

Clowns Without Borders is also working on making further trips to Haiti possible and to establish an ongoing presence there, where children are enduring extreme poverty.

CLOWNS WITHOUT BORDERS offers 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.
