Dress a Girl Around the World

Dress a Girl Around the World is a Campaign sponsored by Hope-4-Women International bringing dignity to women around the world since 2006. 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 respect, and that they are loved by God.

Parishioners are invited to help with this event by sewing, ironing, cutting, and giving. Completed dresses will be distributed to needy girls around the world and help them to be recognized as cared for to prevent their abduction by human traffickers. “Imagine a world where every girl owned at least one dress.”
