Beginnings

The Nations Hope Store is a subsidiary of the ministry of Global Partners in Peace and Development, a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Founded in 2003, Global Partners serves in five main areas across the globe, bringing help and hope to children, widows and many others in need worldwide. We primarily serve communities in India, Haiti, Slovakia, Jordan, and Uganda.

In 2012, we launched our first sewing micro-business training, teaching 21 impoverished women how to start a sewing business of their own. As the training program has continued, many women have learned trades in order to provide income for their families.

How It Works

We provide participants with necessary startup materials such as a sewing machine, which they could not otherwise afford. Trainees learn business basics and hone their craft by learning to create the unique products offered in the Nations Hope Store. Once they earn a portion of the cost of their machines by making a few products for us, we pay them for any additional products they make before completing the program. Each trainee leaves our program equipped to start an independent home business in their community.
 
All proceeds from the Nations Hope Store are poured directly back into micro-businesses. The funds are used to help buy materials, pay trainees for labor, and start new businesses. To learn about other ways Global Partners brings hope and help worldwide, visit gpartners.org/causes.
