I'm Doing It In A Dress because...
130 million girls do not have the chance to get an education, and by grade 5, only half as many girls as boys attend school in Uganda.
Educating a girl to secondary school level makes them six times less likely to be married as a child, will double their earnings, reduces child mortality by 49%, and improves health issues such as HIV/AIDS, cholera, and poor menstrual hygiene. An educated girl is also more able and more likely to contribute fully in their families, communities and societies, as earners, informed mothers, and agents of change.
I have been so privileged to receive the education that I have, and would like to give girls in Sierra Leone and Uganda the opportunity to receive a quality education by ‘doing it in a dress’ to raise funds for One Girl, which provides secondary school scholarships, business training, school shoes, sanitary pads, and education on water, sanitation, and hygiene to girls in Sierra Leone and Uganda.
