The Uthando Project Update

Uthando ProjectThe Uthando Project, a 2006 recipient of a World AIDS Day award presented by WAAC, is a grassroots organization that makes dolls to send to children living in KwaZulu-Natal. The dolls play a valuable role in allowing children, many of whom have been orphaned or otherwise affected by HIV/AIDS, the joy of a possession of their very own that provides not only comfort but also an important outlet for emotional and creative expression.

In late March, the Uthando Project’s Georgia Efford and Irene Gill traveled to KwaZulu-Natal to share their skills in doll making with 55 grandmothers from the area. OUTinPerth went visited the women after their return to Australia to hear their stories and see the photos.
