"The Uniform Mission Project has shown me that making a difference in a child’s life is as easy as donating your old school uniforms. One missionary who was taking uniforms to Kenya told me that you can keep love in your heart but it doesn’t truly become love until you give it to someone else, and that’s what this project is all about.” Ali Palmer, UGA, Class of 2014
"The Uniform Mission Project is a unique and very great project. Words can't explain the smiles on the kids who receive the clothes from this project that I send to Kenya." Charles Wangondu, Coordinator for donations to Kenya
The Uniform Project keeps good clothing out of the landfill, recycles clothing to children who need them, and in so doing enables children to attend school. We have clothed entire schools! We also collect soccer shorts/jerseys and cleats.
Lend a Hand: From mending and sorting to doing school pickups, volunteers are a crucial part of our work.
Take Us on a Trip: We are always looking for people to deliver clothing across the world.
The Uniform Project was started in 2010 when Founder Beth Kempe started collecting uniform clothing, from Atlanta area private schools, that would have been discarded. These clothes were not perfect, yet had a lot of wear left in them. Beth thought someone somewhere could use them, and contacted area church mission groups. Soon these groups were taking the clothes with them on their mission trips to schools and orphanages. A lot of these children had not been able to attend school without a uniform.
