Simple Pillowcase Dresses Benefit Girls in Africa

Making a dress out of a pillowcase is incredibly easy, and the end result is a sweet garment that could benefit a young girl on the other side of the world. The Gamma Theta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. recently sewed nearly 1,000 of the dresses to be sent to communities in South Africa and Liberia. Their effort was a part of a national mission by AKA to provide tens of thousands of dresses to little girls.
