The “pigotta” project was started by Unicef in 1988 to provide the African children with some vital needs like vaccines, medicine, and food to reduce the risk of mortality in their first five years after birth.By donating at least 20 euros you can adopt a “pigotta” made by the volunteers of Unicef.The motto of this project is
“a doll can save a child”.Like other schools our school is also inspired by this donation project of Unicef Italia and created “ pigotte ” all made of recycled materials.
Then, we organized donation bazaars whose money would be donated to charity.
In the dialect of Lombardy, Pigotta is a traditional handmade rag doll which many generations played with.
“Pigotte” can be produced easily as you need only scissors, a needle, sewing thread, some cotton, and a little creativity. The students can also make it with a little help of their teachers.
Necessary Materials and Equipments :
For body: cotton and self colored elastic clothes (white, pink, brown colors symbolizing the children from all over the world), padding, and kapok (silk cotton)
For dresses: colored clothes, laces, and knitting needles
For hair: colored wool, raffia
Face: pens (which can mark on the clothes)
