I adore Little Dresses for Africa. The heart behind the organization and the devoted volunteers who run it is absolutely inspiring. I have a found kindred spirits in the love, laughter and joy that is shared on so many levels with LDFA. They are not only planting value in the hearts of little girls around the world, they are restoring a sense of value in the hearts of those who serve alongside them. I am immensely grateful for the work LDFA is doing and the message of hope and healing they are spreading to EVERYONE involved!

This an incredible organization! When I travelled to Uganda to visit orphanages, they gave me two suitcases full of dresses and shorts-the kids and their caretakers were thrilled. Such great work!
