Albany Uthando Dollmaking group

Learn how to make a doll so you can make a difference to a child living in Kwa-Zulu Natal, one of South Africa's most affected communities.

Caring for the world's children is everyone's responsibility. Play is essential for children's healthy development, and a child's need for play can become lost when families and communities are in challenging circumstances. The HIV/AIDS pandemic has brought trauma, grief, bewilderment and loss to many, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. Uthando invites you to join us and offers a way for you to make a very special contribution.

The Albany group meets every three weeks,  with varying days. Doll making kits are available for $10 but many items get donated so you may be able to make the dolls with the group for free.
