Product Description

This very unique doll story set gives children the opportunity to learn about the Bangladeshi culture. It is a wonderful multicultural teaching aid for those involved in early childhood learning. The set comprises two dolls ( the man with the fishing net and the woman carrying the fishing bag ) , a laminated photo, a laminated map of Bangladesh and a laminated story. All this in an organic cotton drawstring bag! Mamun who is aged 15 , his sister Shefali 13, and their mother and father live in a small village in Bangladesh.

These dolls have been hand made by a producer at the Y.W.C.A. Craft Centre, Bangladesh. This centre gives skill training and work to 450 ladies, especially those who have been uneducated and destitute. This centre creates a warm caring environment for the producers. Some of the services available to the producers are a 10% compulsory savings scheme , health care, subsidised medicine, interest free loan and the availability of free legal advice.
