Dress A Girl Around The World’s [DAG] goal is to provide dignity and protection to young girls in crisis situations while letting them know they are loved. Their website says there are many “girls who live in a society where they have no value—where they are used as slaves—where they are abused and preyed upon and no one considers this to be unspeakable injustice. By providing a new
dress you may well be changing a young girl’s destiny. Village pastors tell us that a girl wearing a new dress presents an appearance that she is well cared for and may discourage would-be predators.”

These sweet girls often have the responsibility of fetching the water for the family. They go to the public water source and are often abused or even forced into human trafficking. And as stated above, often a new dress is enough protection to stop a predator.
