Life is back in Dolls Village
Monday, March 30, 2015
Spring brings three things in the Dolls Village (Thatta Ghulamka Dhiroka): budding flowers in kitchen gardens, students, researchers and foreign volunteers in the Women Art Centre and Showroom at the village. This time Dr Senta Siller and Dr Norbert Pintsch were also together in the village. Resul: the life was back in the village.
As per our standard operating procedure, all the guests are taken to Women Art Center where they are welcomed by Farooq Ahmed, the Director TTTC and Farzana Zahoor of Women Art Center; both of them from the village NGO AFA.
This time students from University of Punjab were in the village. Farooq briefed them on the history of the AFA and also gave an overview of activities that happen in the village round the year. He also threw light on AFA efforts in the field of environment protection and appropriate technology application.
Farzana Zahoor told about Handicrafts, Dolls and toys that are produced in the village and how they reach in international fairs and museums across the world.
Guests were also given a guided tour of the showroom in the WAC and also taken to Basic health Unit and two government schools in the village.
