Give an Orphan a Teddy Bear - Pakistan

by Dawood Global Foundation - Educate a Girl Vetted since 2014 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit


Provide a teddy bear to an orphan. Orphanages and schools are providing food and education, but the children lack love and physical comfort like hugs and cuddling. Teddy bears provide comfort and improve self-esteem in children especially those with special needs. We are gifting 500 teddy bears because they are providing something to cuddle with for children who do not have access to such toys. We will be gifting both regular and special needs children.

total goal
monthly donors


Orphans need extra love. We want to gift them something to cuddle and love. We are trying to fundraise teddy bears for as many children as we can, and if some donors prefer to give a combo gift pack, then those will be the prizes to the games/contests held.


This project is about spreading love and raising self-esteem, in an effort to build and strengthen the community of special needs children in Pakistan.

Long-Term Impact

We have selected a teddy bear because it is a soft, cuddly toy that can last decades as a reminder of the community being fostered. It also will make the child both happy and proud for attending the workshop which will raise his/her self-esteem
