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

All of the products in our online store have been handmade by women in impoverished areas who are seeking to provide for their families or better their futures. 

At a Maker’s Event, each lady learns how to create one of the items in our online store, and she is paid that day for products she completes. Regular attendees have opportunities to grow skills, which translate into their own small business contexts.

The Nation’s Hope Store is so much more than a business endeavor. Our team is intentional with relationships, encouraging the women in God’s truth, praying with them, and looking for discipleship opportunities.

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
