Topic: Partner Programs

In many low-resource countries around the world, the medical and psychosocial needs of children living with serious illness are often outside of what local services can provide. Often, the medical needs of children are not met, personal and community knowledge about the illness and treatments are lacking, and the children and their families are marginalized due to the stigma of the condition.

Working in collaboration with trusted international organizations in 12 countries, SeriousFun’s develops programs to provide the educational and social support needed to help children living with serious illnesses, namely HIV, adhere to their treatments and remain healthy long after camp is over.

The programs offer the same life-changing experience that children who attend a SeriousFun Camp in the U.S., Europe, Japan, or Israel get, but in the form of locally-designed, culturally-applicable programs that excite, inspire and empower children, wherever they live.
