What is Little Dresses for Africa?

Little Dresses for Africa is a non-profit 501c3 organization, which provides relief to the children of Africa. Simple dresses are made out of pillowcases and distributed through the orphanages, churches and schools in Africa to plant in the hearts of little girls that they are worthy! Knowing the history of the girls in Africa and the difficult road that lay ahead, a small group of ladies returning from a short term mission trip to Malawi began to sew simple little dresses made out of pillow cases to be distributed to young girls through the orphanages in Africa. To date they have received dresses and donations from all 50 states across the USA and received well over 130,000 little dresses that have been distributed in 22 countries of Africa! They have also been able to distribute dresses to countries in crisis, when requested such as Honduras, Guatemala, Philippines, Mexico and Haiti, as well as right here in the US in the Appalachian Mountains and South Dakota.

Why do we want to help Little Dresses for Africa?

We at The Compassion Fashion Project feel that we do not want to limit our efforts to local charities alone. As we reach out to other non-profits who are connected in supporting communities nationally and globally, our message will spread resulting in a more powerful connection to humanity as a whole. Divas Dressing Darlings will be our first event and introduction to our community. We hope to bring awareness to Little Dresses for Africa, raise pillowcases and monetary donations for the shipping charges. The Compassion Fashion Project believes that our connection to this particular organization is based in the fact that the treatment of little girls (and boys) in Africa is one of abuse and neglect resulting in children not having the proper clothing they need. Little Dresses for Africa is making this happen by not only supplying little girls with clothing, but hand-made with tender loving care, just for them, one of a kind dresses. This proves that not only are we giving these children the vital resources that they need, but we are providing them with LOVE and HOPE. Patterns are also designed for little boy britches, so we do not leave out any little ones that need our help.
