Minnesota nonprofit to donate 2,000 dolls to girls in Nepal

A Minnesota nonprofit is trying to help girls on the other side of the world.

Golden Valley-based Headwaters Relief Organization will deliver 2,000 dolls to girls in Nepal to help urge them to stay in school.

The group partnered with a multicultural doll maker to help girls identify their own strengths and potential through a doll that looks like them.

"How you look, whether it’s the color of your hair or the color of your eyes is beautiful, too, is critical in the formation of a young girl’s self-esteem," Headwaters founder Rebecca Thomley said.

The cost to sponsor a doll is $25.

You can donate on the Headwaters Relief website.
