Our visit to Dolls4Tibet

 

We visit the Dolls4Tibet workshop in Dharamsala, northern India to take a look at their humble endeavors. With unique creations by Tibetan refugees and local Indians, their project aims to empower its artisans by training them in new skills and creating meaningful, income generating and enjoyable work opportunities within a homely and supportive environment. Additionally, they seek to preserve Tibet’s endangered culture with their personalized Tibetan and Steiner-inspired products. The workshop is a small-scale, self sufficient, socially aware enterprise which abides by fair trade principles. Dolls4Tibet also aims to encourage cross-cultural understanding and social integration – an important aspect of refugee life.
