Culture is a Basic Need

Dr Karola Groch at Thatta Ghulamka Dheroka

Dr Karola Groch - the Medical Doctor – was in Thatta Ghulamka Dheroka (aka Dolls Village) for more than 10 times. She has played a very memorable role in the development of Basic Health Unit (BHU) in the Village. She plans to visit the Dolls Village once again. This time she will also take 1 baby – 1 tree.

The I baby I tree is a cherished tradition is a Anjuman-e-Falah-e-Aama - NGO founded 1991 – in wich one flower tree is given to family that haves a baby and also one fruit tree to the every newlywed couple.

Handicraft development is the most important activity in the Dolls Village as it generate some additional income for the families living there. Life in rural areas is far cheaper than the urban centers and a little money for rustic people can go a long way in improving their social life. And every volunteer that comes to the village adds to the possibilities of creating more ncome for more families.

The volunteers and friends of TGD have become an institution by themselves. Presently they together with Dr Senta Siller participate in bazaar in ethnological museums.
