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.

She was invited by Darlys Bird who along with her husband Dave, leads Calvary International Development Ministry, an organization whose mission is teaching Haitians construction skills so they may rebuild their country and their lives.

The group of single mothers were part of a women’s Bible study group Darlys led who had just 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 built by CIDM, 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. It was an experience that planted the women of Haiti in her heart.
