The Full Story



Sheetal Agarwal, the founder of Clownselors, is a passionate woman who wanted to spread smiles in the world. She is a Sociologist/Social anthropologist by training, a lecturer by profession, and a big Clown at heart. Her passion for community service and humbleness for humanity prompted her to start medical clowning in Delhi in July 2016. Sheetal's experience has trained her to be meticulous, creative, and resourceful. From being a motivational speaker to becoming a TEDx speaker, she has always inspired people in many ways, and she has received enormous support. 

Our founder's humbleness, compassion, and enriching behavior have taught everyone to be grateful and eager to give back to society. She has a demonstrated track record in running and growing this non-profit organization and taking it to the next level of performance.





We're on a mission to spread joy, happiness, and the sound of laughter through those intimidating hospital corridors. Our goal is to cultivate efficacy in the field of healthcare and progress the healing process with the help of humor. In the upcoming years, we want to reach all the remote areas of our country and help ensure better healthcare facilities for all. 



Clownselors believe that compassionate human connection has a robust power to heal. With the help of therapeutic medical clowning, we want to create a window of happiness for all the patients, families, medical team, and staff. We want to light up the life of isolated and non-communicative people by bringing a positive change in their lives and creating a successful model of medical clowning that responds to the needs of diverse human beings.

    Medical clowns add value in several work areas, including private/government hospitals, schools, women's self-help groups, and traumatic and stressful environments. Still, it is currently difficult to pursue as a career option because we don't have sustainable sources or paid clowning options.

The feedback from both parents and sick children and the hospital community has been overwhelming.
