Little Dresses for Africa

“We plant the seeds; God will send the harvest.”

We participate with this organization to provide pillowcase dresses to little girls in Africa and beyond, sending hope and letting them know they are worthy individuals.  Many little girls in Africa are head-of-household and take care of younger siblings.  Some become victims of human trafficking.  By providing a dress made from a cotton pillowcase or a yard of fabric, we give them dignity.  Through this simple loving act, we make a difference in their lives.  In addition, each head-of-household receives a copy of the New Testament in their language. 

 

There are a number of ways you can participate.  Please contact Dot Johns.
