The Dress A Child program started in the year 2007 in the hopes of providing needy children with a new set of clothing. Since March 2000, Prints of Hope has reached out to thousands of poor children in various countries around the world. If you have traveled to a third world country, you have seen the amount of children that lack clothing and walk barefoot. Many obtain bacteria and diseases that become life threatening when not treated. It is know that not having the appropriate clothing and shoes to wear, contributes to 90% of the preventable diseases found in third world countries. Many are unable to attend school because they don’t have the means to purchase uniforms and shoes. Others need to work from a very young age and without shoes they suffer from foot lesions preventing them from working to help their families. It was after seeing such a need that Prints of Hope launched Dress A Child (DAC) in 2007.
