Frequently asked questions
What's the process of helping out?
1) A school, individual, or organization raises funds for the uniforms and shoes.
2) With funds raised, the uniforms are stitched and shoes are measured out locally.
3) We personally give the clothing to each orphaned girl.
4) Shortly after, pictures of the beneficiaries will be posted on the website.
So, how exactly can I help?
Schools: We can set up a 20-minute video call session with your students. We can work towards raising an initial $105 to provide uniforms and footwear for 15 orphaned girls.
Individuals: We can set up a video call session to answer any questions you may have. For only $7, together we can provide an orphaned girl with a uniform and a pair of shoes!
How will you spend the donated money?
We provide ambitious, underprivileged students with a custom sewn school uniform and appropriate shoes.
How do I know I'm making a difference?
Along with the group of beneficiaries in the picture, is a board that acknowledges the donor(s) and school that helped to fund the clothing for those students. In addition, we will send a picture of the girls benefitted by contributions.
Why are there not 15 girls in every photo?
The reality is that some of the girls skip a few days of school to work on the fields so that they can scrape buy a little money for themselves. At the time the picture is taken, as many uniforms are given as there are students present. However, at a later date the rest of the uniforms are given to those absent from school that day.
