DRESS A GIRL AROUND THE WORLD
What Is It?: A program that “delivers dresses & hope to girls in need & at risk around the world,” including within the U.S. The program is run by Hope 4 Women International, a Christian organization based in Arizona.
Help Needed: Make simple cotton sundresses from instructions provided; the dresses are then delivered to needy girls.
Minimum Age to Volunteer: None, but volunteers should be able to sew a simple but high-quality dress.
Make simple cotton sundresses from instructions provided, then deliver the dresses to our local contact (see below) or mail them to Dress a Girl’s Arizona headquarters. The dresses are then hand-delivered to needy girls.
“Gather your friends, family, co-workers, church group, etc and have a fun night of sewing once a week, or monthly, or do a one-time marathon.”
SEW HYGIENE KITS AND/OR SEWING KITS
Each hygiene kit consists of 2 panties, 10 pads, 2 liners, 1 soap, 1 washcloth, and 1 backpack. These sanitary supplies are hard to obtain in the areas that DAG serves, and older girls cannot attend school without them. The sewing kit is a drawstring pouch filled with sewing necessities. DAG has specific patterns for these kits.
