My niece who is on a year-long volunteer assignment in the Philippines sponsored by the Aus Red Cross reposted and shared my 'Share the Love' this Valentines Day Charity Drive among her 430+ facebook friends hoping that the drive would be able to collect lots of pillowcases and fabrics. She asked if I could send ready-to-sew kits for an ayad friend who is working with an agency that deals with girls who have been rescued from trafficking and the sex industry. They will use the ready to sew kits to run vocational sewing workshops with the older girls who usually can't get into college after high school so they develop a skill.
Yes, dress kits on their way!
If you are wondering what an 'ayad' is ayad is an acronym for Australian Youth Ambassadors for Development. It provides skilled young Australians the opportunity to volunteer overseas in Asia, the Pacific and Africa.
If you want to help me make more kits for vocational sewing workshops to help the less fortunate earn a living, please donate fabrics and/or pillowcases to Dress A Girl Australia.
