Do It In A Dress 2020

I'm Doing It In A Dress because I’m so grateful for the education I’ve had access to and I want to see more girls change the world by having the chance to go to school.

... 130 million girls around the world are out of school. Educating girls not only changes the lives of those girls, but also their families, communities and countries. Not only that, but getting more girls in school will have a positive impact on climate change! A win-win-win.

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

Help me change the world through girls' education!

My Updates

Why girls' education is a huge catalyst for good

I'm so grateful for the opportunities girls have in our country so I'm passionate about helping improve girls' education elsewhere. Girls going to school reduces child mortality, lowers population growth rates, reduces hunger and lifts economies . Some stats:
- women are two-thirds of the nearly 800 million illiterate people worldwide
- every year of primary school increases girls' later wages by 10-20%
- children of mothers with no education are 3x more likely to die than those with mothers who have secondary education in some parts of the world
