Make a Dress for 3rd World Children
Most little girls like to dress up and wear something that makes them look like a princess, but for some, it is a struggle to find enough clothes to wear at all. For children growing up in poverty stricken countries such as Kenya, Uganda, and Ghana, everyday is a struggle for survival. They lack the basic necessities, including proper clothes.
Dress A Girl Around The World is a charity organisation dedicated to making clothes for children in third world countries, and enlists the help of hobbyists who love to sew or knit. Dress A Girl Around The world provides tutorials on how make pillow-case dresses, britches, and dolls to get you started.
If you want to help put your hobby to good use, you and your friends can form their own group and hold sewing sessions at your local school or church, and let the organisation know what you are doing.
