Shred it in a dress 2016

Mt Buller News - - ON AND OFF THE SNOW -

OR­GAN­IS­ERS of the Shred in a Dress would like to raise $10,000 to help ‘One Girl’ or­gan­i­sa­tion send 33 African girls to school and will con­trib­ute the pro­ceeds from the day to be held next Wed­nes­day, Septem­ber 7.

66 mil­lion girls around the world are not in school, sim­ply be­cause they were born a girl.

Ed­u­cat­ing a girl has a pro­found im­pact on the lives of oth­ers and im­proves the lo­cal econ­omy more than any other type of in­vest­ment.

‘One Girl’ is an Aus­tralian startup non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion founded in 2009 by Chantelle Bax­ter and David Dixon.

One Girl works in Sierra Leone, West Africa to give girls ac­cess to ed­u­ca­tion through their Back to School pro­gram.

So far One Girl has reached over 2300 girls through their projects, in­clud­ing 200 ed­u­ca­tion schol­ar­ships.
