This dress is named after Dr. Sakena Yacoobi. She was born in Afghanistan and grew up watching widows forced to beg for money or work for little food. She began to see the affects of women and children not being able to read and the impact that poverty was having on her country. There were no schools or clinics, really there was no way where people can better their skill set. To change this she founded Afghan Learning Institute to bring education and work training to women and girls. It has already revolutionized neighborhood's in Afghanistan.
This royal blue dress has an attached skirt, it is glamorous and elegant all at the same time.
