Ever since, students have designed and manufactured outfits and accessories for the Blue House each fall semester. Dunne's students see a presentation about the girls, ask questions about their life in Uganda, and then design and mass produce functional clothing specifically for their needs. In 2018, the class asked the Blue House girls to draw designs they’d like to see produced. The students make between 100 and 200 garments each year that are carried to the Blue House by volunteers. For most of these girls, their U of M outfits were the first new clothes they’d ever had. The University students love having such special customers!
