Culture is a Basic Need

Volunteers in TGD

Globally acclaimed work of AFA – NGO in Thatta Ghulamka Dheroka – would not have been possible if it was not for the army of volunteers interested in good work from promotion and preservation of rural culture to the uplift and development of women folk in a village situated in the backwaters of Punjab, Pakistan. This can be said with certainty that no other village in entire Pakistan has seen so many volunteers from home as well as abroad.
Whereas local guests and students come to Dolls Village all around the year but western volunteers mostly come in winters (economy and the climate has special impact on work), mostly in spring time and autumn.

This October Monika Kuppler is again in Women Art Centre for pottery project and Marlis for Basic Health Unit. At the same time, Tikedar Iqbal from Harappa and wife are working on repair work and construction of a new kiln. Dr Norbert Pintsch is already in Pakistan working on so many new ideas and managing the affair.
