Graduation photo time! Don’t they look great?!
Our Advanced Tailoring class made these caps and gowns, which are not only amazing, they save us the cost of renting them each graduation. And more importantly, they’re special. They’re uniquely ours, just like our philosophy that no girl should be excluded just because she’s never had the opportunity to go to school.
They’ve never done graduation photos.
They’ve never been celebrated or had anything to celebrate.
They’ve never done something that they and their families were proud of.
Now, no matter if they’ve gone to school, no matter if they are teen moms, no matter if they’ve done things they wish they hadn’t in order to survive, they can be proud. They can party. They can dance and sing and ululate and laugh til they cry.
Because they did this. It’s all theirs. No one can take the accomplishment or knowledge from them.
That’s why we make it a really big deal! And YOU have helped us get these 35 girls here, you’ve helped us put on the past graduations, and you’ve supported the girls’ journeys from start to finish.
It’s really a team effort, and you’re the starting lineup — we can’t thank you enough!
