Sew to Save Lives

Kicking off another UNICEF workshop this week are student volunteers from Umbra and the University of Perugia. Students will work alongside local Italian volunteers each week to design and sew Pigotta dolls and their clothes. Each doll is adopted and raises enough money to fund a vaccine kit protecting a child and his/her mother against deadly diseases in developing countries. UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund, has their local office in a beautifully frescoed office in walking distance from Umbra. This workshop is the perfect opportunity for the student volunteers to learn Italian, make new friends, and be proud of their donation to a global cause.
