Get HOPE Global began in 2008 as a faith-based nonprofit. At that time, a team of passionate, God-inspired volunteers envisioned a world where impoverished women and at-risk girls could be self-supporting and could honorably compete in the marketplace. We looked for ways we could play a role in helping to break the debilitating cycle of poverty. This led to the development of life-impacting business training, microloans, and character-focused bible lessons.
Our vision and focus continues to be on spreading the reach of the gospel and giving hope to the hopeless. I am humbled and delighted to say that vision is now a reality for many women in the developing world. We rejoice in God’s abundant grace as it continues to grow and unfold in awesome and unexpected ways.
When I initially heard God’s call to use my interests, skills and background as an educator and a business owner to write the HOPE training programs, I didn’t realize how many volunteers and supporters would partner with me in this initiative. I have been inspired and amazed by how God has worked through the use of this curriculum and small loans to not only bless, but to give those in need a chance – the dignity of a chance.
As a faith-based nonprofit organization, we expand our reach through the help of volunteers, donors, mission organizations, HOPE staff and board members. As founder, I give God all the glory for great things He has done.
We welcome you to our website to see what God is doing in HOPE. I want to encourage your participation in our calling with your prayers, donations and support in telling others of this ministry.
Let the celebrations continue!
