People from around the world gather together under the banner of "Dress A Girl" to make pillowcase dresses because they all dream of making a difference in a woman or child’s life. Recently they donated nearly 60 dresses to our beautiful Sunshine Children in Vietnam.
In a world where every girl has at least one new dress to protect her from the elements and potential danger, they can ensure every girl knows that she is worthy of love and respect.
"Dress a Girl Around the World" is part of an International Organisation called >>Hope 4 Women International<<. Since its initial start in 2006, the focus has been about bringing hope and dignity to women in the way of donated new dresses. Since then they have delivered over 300,000 dresses to over 81 countries, Uganda, Fiji, Cambodia, Vanuatu and Vietnam.
Anyone can help to make a dress and lend a helping hand, which was the case for Dress a Girl’s New Zealand
Co-ordinator, Karen Wilson.
It is truly amazing that each dress that is sent to a girl can change her destiny. In a large amount of villages, wearing a new dress can depict an appearance that the girl is well cared for and may discourage potential predators. Unique to the dresses is the Dress a Girl label on the outside of each garment, sending an additional message that each girl is under the care of an organisation. With cotton material and strict finishings, the dresses are made of good quality to maintain long-wear.
CNCF believes Dress a Girl’s mission to be truly inspiring and like us, how one person can make a difference. They are dedicated to changing a child’s life for the better.
