Bo Twal, which means cloth kiss in Haitian Creole, provides handmade cloth dolls to girls and boys in underdeveloped countries.
Sewists within the children’s country are paid to sew the dolls and then distribute them to the children. This program provides a huggable friend to the children as well as income to the needleworkers.
Funds to pay the sewists are raised through the sale of doll patterns and kits. Our first doll pattern for sale, the Bo Twal Sewing Smiles Doll, is the same pattern used by the international sewists when they construct the dolls to donate to the children in their country.
You can learn more about Bo Twal and how to purchase patterns and kits at botwal.org.
