Who We Are

We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit that provides a platform for you to donate your traditional Indian clothing to underprivileged kids in India.

The Process


Collect Donations

Contact us here to donate or to volunteer to start a collection center.

Please consider carrying a bag or giving a monetary donation to our GoFundMe to help us cover shipping costs.

Sort & Sanitize



Ship Dresses

We distribute dresses to our three partner organizations: Catalysts for Social Action, Aarna Foundation, and Goonj. Our aim is to specifically donate to families under the poverty line who cannot afford these beautiful, traditional dresses.

With consent, we will send the donors pictures of the kids wearing their dresses.





To help us reach more kids please consider donating or volunteering!

Dream Dresses is such a simple yet meaningful initiative. The children from the CSA-supported CCis were delighted to meet with her and the thrilled to receive the festive wear. It meant a lot to them! We wish Dream Dresses all the best and hope that they continue to light up children’s lives through their initiatives. - Henal Shah Head - Fundraising & Communications | Catalysts for Social Action
