A doll to fight discrimination

Her name is Alexa and she’s got a beautiful blond afro. In South Africa, a young designer has just introduced a doll with albinism to promote tolerance. The albino doll is part of the Malaville collection which celebrates natural hair and all skin tones. She was created to challenge prejudice and discrimination against albinism. “Teaching children from an early age will help change the views of a new generation for the better; they will then treat people with albinism as equals,” Alexa’s creator Mala Bryan said in an interview with The Huffington Post. Today, people with albinism are still persecuted, hunted down and killed for their body parts in eastern and southern Africa, and children are particularly at risk.
