I'd like to update this to let everyone know that Little Dresses is growing and doing more all the time. We would love to have your help. Some sew. Some donate. Some organize the dresses for shipping. Some help with fund raisers. But, it takes us all1 Little Dresses for Africa is a christian non profit 501c3 organization dedicated to providing relief to the most vulnerable of God's children: little girls. We collect home made dresses, made of brightly colored pillow cases, and distribute them all over the continent of Africa, to plant in the hearts of little girls that they are worthy. We supply them by sending them with mission teams, mailing them to NGO's and taking them ourselves on short term mission trips. During distribution, we conduct simple lessons on nutrition, clean water and sanitation. Donations have been received from all 50 states as well as Canada, Australia and the UK and have been distributed in 46 countries of Africa as well as other countries in crisis such as The Philippines, Haiti, Honduras, Dominican Republic, Mexico, and Guatamala. We believe that lives are changed here and across the ocean as gender, age and denominational lines are crossed as we help others. Groups can work independently of each other and send the donated dresses and now also shorts for boys, to Michigan for packaging and distribution. Mission groups can request as many dresses as they are able to distribute. We like to say, "We're not just sending dresses, we're sending hope."

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my every day life. As Director of LDFA, I see lives touches every day, both here and across the ocean, as so many join together to help others. The joy of a little dress means so much more than clothing. It shows them that they are not forgotten...that they are worthy...that there is hope. All of the dresses are so beautiful and sewn with so much love. Trust me, it makes a difference!!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

figure out a way to get more grants so we can do more each year

This organization creates a sense of hope and security for girls that thier cultures treat like second class citizens. Not only does she provide clothing for girls and britches for boys - she has also funded the building of a school and teachers. I have worked with her for almost 2 years now and the unity of cultures/freinds and the goals of this group are outstanding. spreading the word and work of the Lord all over the world. Excellence inspires excellence and that is just what her andher organization does. They are also aligned with Buckets of Hope that provides a months worth of food for a family. Her passion for this cause is amazing. LDFA has also helped to set up woman in these countries with training and sewing machines so they can support their own families. I can not say enough about her and her organization. They are truly a blessing to this world!!
