Resources for teachers

Who will play with my doll?

Who will play with my doll?

Teachers, thank you for thinking of Uthando Project.

As well as  our general Guidelines and our page on Tools and materials, we have two resources specifically for you:

Uthando Project for Teachers is a hand-drawn, double-sided A3 sheet that you can download and print. This has a doll pattern and lots of tips and ideas.

Teachers’ Workbook Notes is a thirteen-page document with more detailed thoughts on doll making in the classroom.

Let us know if you are intending to embark on this project in your school, at schools@nulluthandoproject.org. Our schools coordinators are very happy to talk through any ideas, quantities, deliveries, worries and timing. You’ll find it helps enormously to make a doll yourself first, as you’ll then really understand the process and time involved.

You can find out more about the background to our work, and about the impact of the HIV/AIDS pandemic on all the children in a community, in our Awareness Resources section.

We also have a Facebook page, Uthando Project Inc, where you can post photos of your dolls.

Enjoy your dollmaking!
