Sponsor a Doll

Donate a doll:

This exciting new project works on three levels. The crafters sew charming male and female, fully clothed dolls for which they are paid. The cost of each doll (R210) is covered by donors, while the dolls are distributed to orphaned children in child-headed households. These children have probably never owned a toy of their own and frequently suffer psycho-social deprivation and lack of nurturing and emotional/caring skills through their particular home circumstances. Having a human figure (that looks like them) to love and care for adds comfort to their lives. Finally, a portion of the donor’s funds are allocated to Zimele’s Orphan Children’s Education Fund to go towards the cost of school uniforms.

Estimated cost: R210 per doll
