Puppeteers Without Borders is an NGO staffed by trained professionals with over 20 years of experience. We are creating puppetry programs around the world to encourage communication and imagination while covering a range of complicated and sometimes difficult topics.
A puppet is matter which comes alive, an object which takes on life. It is this magic which allows it to captivate audiences of both children and adults…
A puppet can be rude, outspoken and truthful.
Through puppetry we can reach the outrageous, absurd and impossible.
A puppet can speak swiftly and directly
Our aim is to promote growth, change and conflict-resolution.

Puppets as ICDP Ambassadors???? We offer to collaborate with ICDP in various ways: 1: To create training modules in puppetry specifically adapted to the ICDP program, for groups of ICDP trainers, so that caregivers will grasp easily and visually the principles of the program. 2: To create a video illustrating with puppets the 8 dialogues, so that the program can be easily and visually understood by agencies, financing companies, possible donors. 3: Accompany trainers in their work location, in order to add the aspect of puppetry in caregivers training.
