Do It In A Dress 2020

We're Doing It In A Dress because...

... 130 million girls around the world are out of school and 60% of the world's illiterate adults are women. Educating girls not only changes the lives of those girls, but also their families, communities and countries. Prioritising girls’ education ensures women are able to lead safer, more autonomous lives, increase their earning potential, and invest in their children and communities by encouraging the cycle of education to continue.

But biases against girls run deep in education systems. As science students at ANU, we are immensely grateful for the education we have been able to access. However, we also realise that although education should be a right, not a privilege, so many women are denied this opportunity to learn.

We're putting on a school dress to raise awareness and raise funds for girls' education. Because when we put on a dress, we'll be helping girls in Sierra Leone and Uganda put on a school dress and take charge of their futures.Β Β 

Over the next two months our team will be taking part in a variety of exciting (science-y) activities as well as everyday hobbies and chores while wearing a school dress. (Stay tuned for photo updates...) Help us change the world through girls' education!

Hi Vrinda :) I hope you are doing well! I'm very happy and proud that you are fundraising to help underprivileged girls have a proper education. Education is so important and girls/women are often denied what should be a right for everyone. I'm glad I can help out a bit. Keep up the good work and good luck :)
