To help ready the girls to return to their villages, Dr. Hamlin and the hospital provides each of them with a new dress so they can re-enter the world with their heads held high. To help in this, The Limited clothing store sent along new outfits for the girls. And, Philosophy provided everyone with a makeup kit, complete with lipstick!

Oprah also wanted to give them a gift that would help rebuild their lives. Each girl received a wallet with $100 inside. In Ethiopia, $100 is the equivalent to one year's salary. It is more than some of them have ever hoped to own.
