Description

A purchase of this doll not only provides a gift for a loved one; its “twin” will be given to a child in a family affected by HIV/AIDS in Zimbabwe, most of whom have no other toys. The dolls are part of a unique project of Batsiranai, a women’s handicraft project that supports mothers with disabled children in Harare, Zimbabwe. Women work in teams to make the dolls, sharing tasks according to their ability.

The “twin” for your doll is distributed in one of a number of ways. Some dolls are shared through organizations working with needy families affected by HIV in the greater Harare area. Given a priority to distribute the dolls in rural areas, Batsiranai has also linked with an organization called Zvitambo, funded through Johns Hopkins University and other donors with the mission to reduce HIV transmission. Zvitambo promotes exclusive breastfeeding for babies of mothers who are HIV+ until age six months, as this has dramatic effects on reducing morbidity and mortality of babies. Zvitambo holds clinics in very remote parts of Zimbabwe to teach about prevention of HIV transmission campaigns from mothers to babies. The dolls are distributed to children during these awareness campaigns. Reports from Zvitambo of responses to the doll distribution are heartwarming.

  • Very small for the price

  • Wonderful, thoughtful, didactic gift!

    Beautiful and delicate, this doll is perfect to teach our very fortunate children about the value of sharing, of contributing to making the world a better place, and of being aware of how much we have to be thankful for. It's time to give back! :)

  • Excellent Gift

    I bought my first Twin Girl Doll for my grandson's best friend, a 5 year old girl who had to have surgery. I thought it would be a meaningful gift, along with some other craft items, as she recovered. It is a beautiful, well-made little doll, and serves a good cause. I am buying another for my 3 year old granddaughter.
