I live in Lusaka which is the capital of Zambia. It is a city of one million people and has a lot of traffic. But we are outside of town center in a quiet neighborhood, and our family has a chicken farm. We raise eggs and meat for all of our neighbors and for the school that I attend. I’m in 4th grade and am learning to write in both Tonga and English. I love to make up stories and read them to my friends.


Hello, I am Luyanda, which means "Love" in Tonga 8"

    Every doll is a unique individual made of natural fiber. The skin is 100% cotton jersey, the hair is 100% wool and clothing is made from traditional cotton chitenge cloth.

    Zambezi dolls are soft and huggable, good for the environment and good for the heart. Stylish or funny, dark or light, Zambezi Dolls are a perfect friend for children of any age.
