According to the UNHCR there are more than 750,000 refugees presently living in Jordan. Jordan hosts the second highest share of refugees in the world. The majority of the refugees are from Syria, although they host refugees from 57 different nationalities. 83% percent of Syrian refugees live in urban areas while 17% live in three refugee camps. 48% of the refugees are children. The large refugee population in Jordan causes stress on both their economy and society in general. While Jordan has been very kind and generous to allow refugees to come to their country there is very little opportunity for employment or assistance in general.

Global Partners has the opportunity to impact hundreds of refugees in Jordan, to show and share real love. We see ourselves as one small part of their journey before they immigrate to a new country or go back to their homeland.

Population(s) Served

We conduct English and Worldview camps that not only teach English, but promote hope in the lives of many teens in need. These camps are designed to help people see life through God's perspective.

All-day seminars take place at various times throughout the year. Our most recent seminar was on the intersection of politics and science as they relate to worldview.

For families suffering from malnutrition and poverty, livestock is desired more than any other thing. Many people living in rural Indian villages are field laborers, where the work is only seasonal. These laborers work long, dangerous hours in the hot sun with little pay. Many times, children have to look after themselves for much of the day as the parents try to earn enough for food and shelter.

Animals such as chickens, goats, sheep, pigs, cows and water buffaloes can be used to supply food like eggs, milk and butter during the off season. Offspring from the livestock can be sold for income, and breeding can become a primary income source in some cases. Each family provided with livestock is encouraged to use the first offspring to bless another person in need. This is truly a gift that keeps on giving.

In 2012, we launched our first sewing micro-business training program for 21 women. As the Nations' Hope program has continued, many women have learned trades in order to provide income for their families. Today, more women are being trained in business principles and sewing skills that will help them on their path to starting a business. Visit the Nations' Hope Store Website to shop products made by these aspiring entrepreneurs.
