We are told that a girl wearing one of our dresses sends the message that she is well-cared for, and therefore may discourage would-be predators and human traffickers. The Dress a Girl label on the outside of each dress sends an additional message that each girl is under the care of an organization, giving her added protection from those who would harm her.

Dressed In Hope is a charity whose goal is to help impoverished girls around the world. We recognize the critical need that must be met in order for these girls—not only to survive—but to thrive as well. By sewing and delivering simple, hand-made dresses and small "pocket dolls" to these deserving girls, we send the message that all girls are worthy of love and respect.
Since 2013 DIH has sent disaster relief dresses to the Philippines, Haiti and Kenya. Often we are fortunate to partner with Air Mobile Ministries who deliver water purification equipment to distressed areas desperate for clean water, using our relief dresses as packing material for their equipment and then personally delivering the dresses to orphanages in need of clothing for their girls.
Since 2013 DIH has sent almost 1000 dresses tagged with the
Dress A Girl label. These dresses have gone to Dominican Republic, Intabazwe, Honduras, Nepal, India, Ethiopia, Guatemala, and Uganda.
