Educating girls around the globe is a cause very near and dear to our hearts here at Two Penny Blue. It is the core of our mission, our brand, and what we do each and every day. Many schools around the world are free, but there’s a catch – girls need a SCHOOL UNIFORM in order to attend and many simply can’t afford them. That’s where we come in! We donate a new locally made school uniform with every Two Penny Blue jacket sold, giving these amazing girls an opportunity they so greatly deserve. So when we came across these photos of girls in their uniform going to school around the world published by the Huffington Post, we just had to share!
View some of our favorite uniforms below (seriously some of these are cuter than my outfit right now) or read the full article here.
Thank you for supporting us – we couldn’t do it without you!!

Indian schoolchildren pray during morning assembly at their school in Shimla on December 17, 2014, as they pay tribute to slain Pakistani schoolchildren and staff after an attack on an army school in the restive city of Peshawar.

The 141 people were killed when insurgents stormed an army-run school in the northwestern city of Peshawar and systematically went from room to room shooting children during an eight-hour killing spree.
