Rural project showcases cultural dolls, toys and folklore
Thatta Kedona is a remarkable project in rural Pakistan where high-quality toys and dolls are crafted. Many volunteers from Western countries have visited and coached village people in the self-help project since 1991. The dolls and tin toys reflect regional cultures of Pakistan. The products generate cash income for the farming families through the local cooperative-like NGO (non-governmental organization).
The workmanship of the dolls and toys has garnered international recognition. Literacy and vocational training, holistic village development, self-help activities, the empowerment of women and art history in Pakistani culture are among the many components of Thatta Kedona.
