    A new, unified style

    Day 309

    Looking Sharp

    Feeling and looking put together is not to be underestimated when it comes to boosting your confidence. So today our team had an idea for how to help make two groups in Bidi Bidi Refugee Settlement feel a little more official.

    They might not seem like they have much in common, but both our security guards and students could really use some help with their uniforms!

    “We are the first point of contact when you enter ARC Bidi Bidi,” said one of the guards of the settlement. “We are proud to work for ARC and we want to represent ARC well.”

    We got right to work on getting these security uniforms made for our team in town. At the same time, we put in an order for some girls school uniforms.

    Why? School uniforms can keep children from being able to attend school. Our team had the great to get some new uniforms made for girls, so that they can attend class in style.

    When both parties received their uniforms not only did they look amazing, they got to experience the joy of starting something new! For the guards, a new unified look and for the girls a chance to further their education.

    A little cloth can make a big difference.

    This change made possible by Atomic Data.
