    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Little Dresses for Africa is a non profit organisation dedicated to providing dresses for little girls. Without these dresses, many little girls have nothing else to wear.

    Over one million children in Malawi alone have been orphaned to HIV/AIDS. Because girl orphans are among the most devalued and abused in their culture, and face such oppression, it is the mission of Little Dresses for Africa to plant in the hearts of these little girls that they are worthy. It is reported that girls wearing a new little dress are much less likely to be abducted, abused or molested because the new little dress shows that someone cares about them. AND WE DO!

    We ‘re not just sending little dresses – we ‘re sending HOPE!

    To make these dresses, i need to buy pillow cases, thread, bias binding for straps and trim to decorate the dresses.

    Thankyou for taking your time to read this and for your donation.

    I am a 22 year old with Asperger's Syndrome. I can't work because of this but I have finally found something worthwhile that makes use of my talent for sewing and making things. I am so happy that I can make a difference to the lives of children in Africa who have nothing else.
