Dolls of the World – Project Description
Dolls have always been there Proof of this is found in the escavations in South America, the Subcontinent, Japan, Italy, Greece, and other sites all over the world. Made out of sa number pof materials like wood, wax, clay, cloth etc., they were not only a toy but used also as religious symbols and cult items for example as miniaturized images of persons.
Even today they are used by many people as fetish. Today, the experts are not sure what was the first purpose of the dolls; as a toy, out of which the cult figure developed or the cult figure which became a toy.
Over and above their value as toys with educational value, dolls are realistic documentation of past and present times and therefore important source of our knowledge about the games, life, living and work conditions and economy. They are important cultural carriers.
Dr Senta Siller established different projects in Pakistan, Cameroun, Columbia, etc., in which small but long-term progress was made towards development of rural areas, help towards self-sustained development, discouragement of urbanization by way of income generating projects in the rural areas through production of certain types of handicraft items. Dolls are manufactured here lovingly and clothed in traditional dresses and accessories. Fabric design and types of clothing are revived and take an important place in daily life.
Dolls from Pakistan
The women project established by Dr Siller in 1993 in the pakistani province of Punjab, which has in the meanwhile also added a men centre, has 120 women members and it is generating income. The women here work not on full-time basis but in a traditional way so that family and field work is not compromised and festivals of different types, common in villages, can be celebrated as usual. The village Thatta Ghulamka Dhiroka has about 1200 residents. The villagers established the NGO Anjuman-e-Falah-e-Aama in 1991, which co-operates with the DGFK e.V. (German Society for Promotion of Culture). The Anjuman itself co-operates with six further projects in the country.
Dolls from Cameroun
Three co-operatives (Akwatinuighah, Akaankang, HandiCraft CAT) are functioning since 1998 in Bamenda, the capital of the North-West Provinz in Cameroun, which is located near the border to Nigeria. Also this NGO co-operates with the DGFK, Germany. Bamenda has about 60000 residents living on seven hills, who speak eight different languages. Apart from the men of CAT, over 100 women manufacture a variety of handicrafts.
Dolls from Columbia
The co-operative Tantomejor was established in 1999 in Saboya and it works in the meanwhile with three other initiatives. Saboya has about 6000 residents near Chiquinquira, the capital of Departemento Boyaca, north of Bogota. Also this NGO enjoys cooperation of the DGFK. Over 100 women are engaged in the manufacture of handicraft items.

Growing fast, sharing economy stands at one of those interesting points in time where no one knows how big it might grow. Social technologies have already changed the concept of a community and consumers’ behavior. What in the past was about ownership is now about access.Traditionally, the growth of conventional economy has always based upon larger inputs from finite resources. That is not sustainable long-term solution. Still, armed with theories that disregard physical limits, conventional economy has been successful in creating incredible wealth and technological progress, notwithstanding the depletion in existing resources to near exhaustion. Almost all resources are running out, leaving little for generations to come. Environmental hazards that come with exploiting resources, like climate change, ecosystem devastation, and biodiversity loss.

salaPakistani press publicized in the summer of 2010 that a hobby scientist managed to produce as much as 3 volts direct current by launching a 10 square foot kite.
The young man by the name of Shakeel Amir resides in Shirin Muafi, a village close to the city of Okara. The AFA (NGO) Center of Technology Transfer and Training in the village of Thatta Ghulamka Dhiroka plans another experiment using no source of power at all (prior experiments required electricity!) to improve the results.
As with other NGO projects, the results of the latest experiments are supposed to improve the situation in the rural areas where insufficient technical infrastructure leads to various shortcomings. There is a continuous demand for decentralized power supply due to the fact that no help from the city can be expected.
Since it’s foundation in 1993, NGO has tested and implanted innovations prior to any public attention.
1996 first photovoltaic Installation in Punjab in the TGD Women Center
1998 Installation of according technology (Solar hot plates and kitchen modules)
2000 The project is part of Expo 2000 (voted as Asian advanced technology development)
2002 Work involving droplet irrigation for a cucumber project
2003 Joint venture between AFA Pakistan and CAT (Centre for appropriate Technology) / Cameroon
2004 Workshop regarding Appropriate Technology in Adamghot near Karachi
2006 Workshop regarding Appropriate Technology at COMSATS in Abottabad
2008 Preparation for a project regarding passive solar architecture and internet radio to broadcast in rural areas.
2010 Mud Housing Project participation in Lahore with the AT of AFA’s (NGO’s) TTTC incl. Wind Mill.
Background information regarding the Technology
Internationally scientists continue to create new forms of generating electricity. Up to this day most of the solutions were ground based. Selected scientist are now considering the sky.
The system is rather simple and easy to understand. A kite is launched and the more wind you have the higher the kite will ascend, spooling a chord off from a reel driving a generator.
Once the kite has reached it’s final altitude, it is drawn back by an electric motor that uses less energy than the kite produced during flight. The entire act is computer controlled.
A 64-year old Professor Ockels is the head of the Institute For Sustainable Engineering and Technology at the Technical University in Delft, Netherlands. He is a physicist and has been an astronaut on a space mission in the mid eighties. He has been dreaming about kites generating energy for a long time and believes in the sky as a future power supply.
Ockels and his team have conducted experiments with 100 square feet kites producing as much as 10kW electrical power. Enough to supply 10 households. The scientists believe that high flying kites linked with each other can drive generators producing as much as 100 MW to serve 100.000 households. Ockels envisions 50 or more kites as big as soccer fields flying as high as 3.000 feet.
In other parts of the world scientists are also planning kite projects to produce electrical power. Some of them hope to produce a hundredfold of the global demand.
In 2007 an American company by the name of Makani invested 15 million US dollars to produce energy with flying kites. Makani is a subsidiary of the internet search engine Google. The Italy based company Kitegen plans to launch a number of kites to produce as much as 1 GW of electrical power. The amount of power an average coal-fired power plant would produce.
