This global education program helps educate young children about organs and the power of organ donation, first developed in the UK by Roydon Turner and All Good Co.
The Orgamites is a global education program that introduces the subject of organ donation to children in an age-appropriate way. Its animated characters — a team of lifesaving organs — help children and their families learn about and appreciate the roles of organs, as well as learn what organ donation is all about. They also introduce the concepts of kindness and caring for ourselves, our communities, and the planet.
Awareness events and campaigns help shine a light on those in need, and honour those who have generously donated to save lives. But saving lives now and for generations to come also requires education, starting at an early age. Parents, teachers and healthcare practitioners can all play a role.
Canadian Blood Services OTDT program has partnered with All Good Co to bring the Orgamites to Canada. The Orgamites made their Canadian debut in Fall 2021 and are finding their way into classrooms, homes and transplant centres across the country.
Three sets of resources were developed to fuel discussion in each of the three areas:
