Our focus is entrepreneurship
Helping overcome poverty effectively
The Mission and Reason:
The mission of the “H.O.P.E.” (Helping Overcome Poverty Effectively) Program is to provide women and girls (this can also be utilized for men) with the tools needed to begin their own businesses and sell their products. There is a quote that reads, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” It is our belief that through the “H.O.P.E.” Program, we will be able to not only give but also teach people, currently in poverty, effective ways to provide goods and services to generate income for themselves.Get Involved
Our H.O.P.E. goals
These are our goals and we need your help!
Register 20 Members into the “H.O.P.E” Program
Establish strong relationship with community entities
Provide impactful exposure to the Grace Message
Provide ongoing contact with program members
Assist members in learning Christian Entrepreneurship principles
Assist members in creating their own businesses
This is how:
Locations will partner with local shelters and/or other community entities to obtain women who are interested in creating jewelry for sale. Locations will provide women with the materials and they will create bracelets that they will be able to sell items each month at a H.O.P.E. collective. The H.O.P.E. collective will be a monthly event at the church location where entrepreneurs (not just members of the program but other area entrepreneurs) are able to sale their items. For every (5) pieces of jewelry sold, (1) must be donated for sale on the CDGM website.
