What We Do

No Strings works with masters of the original Muppet Show and Fraggle Rock to reach children made vulnerable through emergencies around the world.

Presenting urgent messages through puppet films and puppet play, No Strings captures children’s imaginations in ways they immediately connect with, supporting their emotional wellbeing, and saving lives.
