After years of suffering at the hands of the Burmese government, the ethnic Karen people were forced to flee their country and now live in exile in refugee camps along the Thai-Burma and Indo-Burma borders. Children in the camps have little access to toys to call their own.

This Gift That Gives More™ supplies one doll each to two children living in the refugee camps. By purchasing dolls for children, you not only bring big smiles to small faces, but also help women artisans in the camps earn a living wage for themselves and their families.


Women's Education for Advancement and Empowerment (WEAVE) is a non-profit organization established in 1990. With project centers in the ethnic Karen and Karenni refugee camps along the Thai-Burma and Indo-Burma borders, WEAVE works to improve the lives of marginalized indigenous women and children by improving education, health, and self-reliance.


Report from the Field

Since the launch of this Gift, WEAVE has been able to distribute dolls to more than 5,000 children in refugee camps in Mae Hong Son province and Tak province. In addition, this program provided regular income to over 300 women.
