The latest donation of bears were delivered to
some Afghan orphanages / winter schools by Wazhma Sadat, one of our Afghan artisan partners.
What she found touched our hearts, as we know it will touch yours.
(Sorry - the bears are out of stock, but you can still help Afghan women and children! )
We're unfortunately out of stock of the Afghan teddy bears, but you can still help!
More for Afghan Children: Love the project but don't need a collectible teddy bear? No problem -- we've provided an option
so that you can have 2 bears commissioned for needy children in Afghanistan for $25.
You'll receive a certificate acknowledging your generosity, and perhaps you'll want to give the

Schools close for 3 months during Afghanistan's winter. Most families cannot afford to travel or to
enroll their children in winter school classes. But there are some winter schools that are free for
those students who cannot afford to pay for extra classes. Due to demand for these free schools,
many are only for orphans.
The teddy bears are handmade by Children and Women Education Fund (CWEF), a Kabul-based non-governmental organization (NGO) that provides education and vocational training in sewing and embroidery to women and teenage girls from the lowest income districts of Kabul.
