Chances are you are visiting this page of my website as you have seen me running, dancing, prancing or wandering around in this dress. Well, I hope it brought a smile to your face. The point of me wearing this dress is that I am fundraising for a charity called One Girl that works to empower and give education to girls in Sierra Leone and Uganda. I am wearing a dress to enable a young girl to have the chance to do the same and gain an education.
In Sierra Leone and Uganda, the chance of a girl attending school are very slim as most families can only afford to send one child, and its more likely to be a boy. If a girl does get to school, the chances of her completing her education are minimal. She is more likely to be married off young, get pregnant or be working. The more time a girl spends in education, the better her prospects for hers and her families future.
I really want to make a big difference to these young girls, if you are in a position to make a donation, no matter how big or small, please go here.
