Dress A Girl Around the World

Quota International of Whakatane

When Quota heard that making a dress for a young girl or teenager could protect them and help reduce the number of assaults, members were quick to get the sewing machines out and start making dresses. Quota International of Whakatane started the "Dress A Girl Around the World" project in March 2015 as a Quota Cares month project. The project continued through March of 2016. Overall, 150 dresses were made for the "Dress A Girl Around the World" project.
