Kiva Lending Team: One Dress Project
We loan because...
The One-Dress Project's mission is to work with and support women’s organizations around the world to enhance and protect women’s health, reduce violence against women, support women to play an active role in society and champion them as they fight for their rights.
Social and economic justice, the foundations of global well-being, can only be achieved by ensuring women's health, safety, human rights, and equality.
Accordingly, the One-Dress Project envisions achieving the following goals through our strategic partnerships around the world:
1. To enable women access to information and services they need to enhance and protect their health
2. To eliminate violence against women
3. To mobilize political will and resources for women’s rights and development
4. To increase women’s participation in civil and political processes
However, we are only able to pursue our goals thanks to the kindness and generosity of people as well as organizations who entrust us with their continued support.
The One-Dress Project's raison d'être (reason for existence) is to raise awareness and funds on behalf of organizations around the world that enhance and protect women’s health, reduce violence against women, educate young girls, and support women to play an active role in society.
The "One Dress" has been collectively designed and created by women from around the globe via online social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, ASmallWorld, YoutTube as well as the One Dress Project Online Community.
Women from around the world were asked to share information about their lifestyle, personal desires, and visions for a better world. Women also shared, for the sake of this project, how their lives relate to one simple - but truly important piece of clothing - the DRESS. By sharing their likes and dislikes in fabrics, colors, necklines, silhouettes, seasons, etc. the "One Dress" was conceived, incubated and now released into the universe. A portion of all profits from the One Dress Project will go to benefit the following organizations/charities: CARE (www.care.org) and KIVA (www.kiva.org).
