Hope 4 Women International has been bringing hope and dignity to women since 2006.
We care about the world's future women too.
So we imagined a world where every little girl owns at least one dress.
Beautifully hand made dresses are being created with love all over the world.
People from all across the United States, Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, Scotland, Uganda, and more gather for a day or an evening of sewing dresses. They gather in living rooms, basements, back yards, dining rooms, schools, churches, and civic centers. They join together because they believe that every girl deserves the dignity of owning at least one dress.
By giving a girl a new dress you could be changing her destiny. Village pastors told us that a new dress gives a girl an appearance of being cared for and may discourage would-be predators. We sew our Dress a Girl label on the outside of each dress sending the message that this girl is under the care of an organization. Thus giving her added protection from those who would harm her. We have no stats to back these statements but if it saves just one. . . isn’t that worth the extra expense and effort?
We started Dress a Girl Around the World in October 2009 and since then have distributed more than 450,000 dresses to 82 countries! We started with pillowcase dresses and have since advanced to more trendy styles made from sturdy cotton fabric to ensure that the dress will not only bring great joy but will be well made and sturdy enough to last for a very long time!
