Before we left to come to Uganda, we had been given some hand made dresses and shorts to give out to the children in Katanga slum. Various people around the world make clothes through an organisation called Dress a Girl Around the World, coordinated in the UK by a women who lives locally to us called Louise Horler. Below are a few pictures from when we went along to a sewing event and made our own dresses for girls around the world.
Keep an eye out for the little boy wearing a ‘hand-me-down’ dress, as his siblings are all girls. We made sure we gave him a pair of nice, red shorts.
Also see the difference in the dull brownish clothes the children were wearing before to the new colorful clothes they are now wearing (along with their infectious smiles!)
Thanks to all those who have made, the children we work with, lots of dresses and shorts.
