Shred it in a dress 2016
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.
