“If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion—how can God’s love be in that person? Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions.”– 1 John 3:17

GOD DESIRES SOCIAL JUSTICE. It’s our business to respond.

In 2012, 896 million people lived on less than $1.90 a day. Yet women around the world are denied basic economic freedoms to overcome poverty, a condition in which women and girls suffer disproportionately. Studies have proven economic empowerment of women has the power to lift the status of even the most vulnerable among us and in turn transform nations.

[/bw_text][bw_row_inner][bw_column_inner col_width=”50″ pr=”15″ text_alignment=”center” animation_type=”fadeIn”][bw_text]

Her Worth International is a women’s economic empowerment ministry, endeavoring to equip a global community of women to transform themselves and the world on earth as it is in heaven. With One Dress United, Her Worth International will use market principles to move money and power to the most vulnerable women around the world.

COMING THIS FALL:
 

ONE SIMPLE SHIRTDRESS paired with HANDMADE ACCESSORIES created by young women overcoming poverty.

 
100% of PROFITS
Donated to ministries that help these young women learn about God, life in His Kingdom, and their own high worth in His eyes.

Her Worth International will host a series of events to accomplish the following goals: [/bw_panama_heading][bw_row_inner padding_top=”30″ padding_bottom=”30″][bw_column_inner col_width=”33.3″ pr=”15″ pl=”15″][bw_icon_text type=”library” icon=”entypo,bwpb-entypo-icon-heart” color=”#878787″ h=”h4″ style=”out_circle” bg_color=”#000000″ size=”24″ text_alignment=”center” title=”Sharing”]

Many who have a heart for social justice may not yet know God shares their concerns and desires their partnership in His transforming work in the world. Our launch will create platforms to draw people closer to the heart of God.

[/bw_icon_text][/bw_column_inner][bw_column_inner col_width=”33.3″ pr=”15″ pl=”15″][bw_icon_text type=”library” icon=”entypo,bwpb-entypo-icon-book” color=”#878787″ text_color=”#000000″ h=”h4″ style=”out_circle” bg_color=”#000000″ size=”24″ text_alignment=”center” title=”Teaching”]

Many Christians may not know that God’s heart for social justice and for women in economically vulernable positions is evidenced throughout both Old and New testaments. The launch events will deepen knowledge and faith in God’s purposes in the world.

It takes money to build a ministry! The launch events will raise seed money needed to get the financial engine running. Our goal is to use business principles to begin generating a surplus in revenue ready for donation by the end of our first year of operation.

OUR PARTNER IN EMPOWERMENT:

Jasper House Haiti

Jasper House has a vision to turn oppression, tragedy, and misfortune into opportunities for empowerment and renewal for young women in Jacmel, Haiti. 

The ministry provides women the opportunity to learn, grow and expand their academic abilities. Plus, just this year Jasper House launched a vocational training program, providing women critical opportunities for employment in order to regain dignity and financial control in their lives.

HOW WE PARTNER:
One Dress United will market the accessories created by the women of Jasper House and donate profits from the sale of our signature Freedom Dress to their educational programs.

LUNCH at the WHITE HOUSE

(Portland’s White House, that is.)

20+ women leaders of ministries and non-profits in the Portland area will be invited to attend a lunch at Portland’s White House with the goal of raising awareness of God’s heart for social justice, the suffering of women worldwide, and paths of action in response to both. Support will be sought in building community attendance at the live launch event for One Dress United.

Seeds for One Dress United™ were planted during the week of Thanksgiving 2012 when Rachel Rose Nelson, Founder of Her Worth, visited a group of single mothers in Jacmel, Haiti who had recently learned to sew. The humble center where they learned was newly constructed in response to great need: these women could not afford to send their children to school for lack of funds to purchase the required uniforms. In a brilliant move, the center was established on the grounds of a nearby orphanage, with the dual intent to sew the required uniforms and at the same time teach the women a marketable skill.

When Rachel learned that the center may be shutting down due to lack of funds, her response was to extend her professional skill set to the situation and develop a sustainable business model for their sewing endeavor. During the trip Rachel met with local contacts, toured the sewing center, delivered letters from her home church to the orphanage, and shared donations with a school-planting Haitian Pastor. But most profound was the time she spent with the women’s Bible study group. Thirty six women came to listen to Rachel share her personal testimony of how God met her as a fellow single mother. At the end she invited any who wished to dedicate their lives to the Lord. Seven women came forward one after another while the others sang hymns in Haitian Creole. It was an incredibly poignant and humbling experience for Rachel, unlike any other before or since.

While the proposed business model seemed sound, there was no ministry equipped to support it. And without a working business model, the sewing program soon ceased operation. This was the inspiration to form Her Worth International, a women’s economic empowerment ministry, and create the structure to support One Dress United, a financially sustainable social business dedicated to supporting women overcoming poverty.
