Dress a Girl around the world
Dress a Girl Around the World wants through a dress to create better conditions of life and safety for girls living in countries with delicate socio-economic situations, mostly in the African continent, where the dresses also arrive thanks to an important partnership: inclusion in the program of solidary miles of TAP (partnership made by the ambassador of the project in Portugal that was born in 2016). Worldwide the project was born in 2009 and currently (2017) the institution has donated 500,000 dresses and is present in 81 countries.
The dresses are identified with the project label which, as proven on the ground, causes any predators to depart by reading in this signal the protection of the child in question under an organization. It should also be noted that the social aspect of the project ends up guaranteeing bilateral support from the people involved, when on one side there are the children who receive the dresses and on the other the volunteers who often, for integration in such a noble purpose, gain strength to solve their own problems, such as social isolation or psychological brittleness.
The commitment that Dress a Girl asks the to who delivers is that it be made in the hands of the beneficiaries; what they ask the institutions is to take a picture of the girls in their new dresses and send them back. In this way a “match” is made with the photograph that was taken with the volunteer when she has finished her dress. It is worth noting that in Portugal we have solidary workshops (sewing), that is, shops that have joined the project to make it grow and where volunteers meet periodically to make dresses.
