The doll-makers (of various ethnic groups of South Africa) feel uplifted, hopeful & enthusiastic as their beadwork provides a source of income as well as a way to connect with their cultural roots. You can feel the spirit of the women in every doll they make!
The women are able to work from home which allows them to look after their families. This community project has grown considerably since its inception & has been a resounding success.
The women have a tremendous sense of pride as their beautifully beaded dolls enchant people world-wide including a sell-out show at Sotheby's of London.
