Dress A Girl Around The World

Dress A Girl Around the World is a wonderful ministry that I am so blessed to be a part of!  We just sent our first shipment of 100 dresses and I was so excited to get back the pictures of all those smiling faces! Be looking for an up-coming post with those pictures.  For now, I wanted to share a little information about the dress a girl program.  I would love to come speak to your church, youth group, or sewing group and tell you more! Please let me know if you are interested!  You can contact me at dagmissouri@gmail.com

The following is taken from http://www.dressagirlaroundtheworld.com/

We dream of a world…

                                           in which every girl has at least one new dress!

 

We want girls to know  that they are worthy of love and respect and most of all that God loves them!

 

Dress a Girl Around the World is a Campaign under Hope 4 Women International (a 501 (c) 3 organization) bringing dignity to women around the world since 2006.  Hope 4 Women International is a nondenominational independent Christian organization.

What if Every Girl had just one dress?

 People from across the United States, Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, The UK, Sweden, the Philippines, Uganda, and more gather for a day or an evening of sewing dresses out of pillowcases and fabric. They gather in living rooms, basements, backyards, dining rooms, schools, churches, and civic centers.

Change Her Destiny

 By providing a new dress you may well be changing a young girl’s destiny. Village pastors tell us that a girl wearing new dress presents an appearance that she is well cared for and may discourage would-be predators. We attach our Dress a Girl label on the outside of each dress sending an additional message that each girl is under the care of an organization, giving her added protection from those who would harm her.

What If You Made That Dress?

 Go around the world with us and see girls who live in a society where they have no value—where they are used as slaves, abused and preyed upon. Imagine kneeling before a little girl in Uganda or the Appalachians. You are holding a beautiful new dress—made by you.  You tell her “I made this dress just for you because you are precious to me and to God.”

Imagine as you drop the dress over her head that the shame she feels is dropping away. She lifts her chin toward the heavens—allowing her to stand tall.
