I'm Doing It In A Dress because...
I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to grow up in Australia, a place where education is valued and accessible to women. Unfortunately, however not everywhere in the world is like this. Currently, more than 130 million girls are denied education. In Sierra Leone almost 50% of the girls aged 15-24 are illiterate and 40% of them are married before they are 18.
When girls receive education life expectancy and income increases, child mortality rates drop and child marriages are less likely.
So for the months of September and October, I'll be wearing a school dress and joining the Women's College team to raise funds to promote female education in countries like Sierra Leone because education should not be a privilege - it is a right.
Every dollar counts so please spare any change you have to support this amazing cause x
