Global Partners is a quality organization with a dedicated and caring staff. I was introduced to the organization several years ago by my sister. I love how they work WITH local communities to find sustainable solutions to their problems. Instead just dropping in with supplies or donations and moving on GP partners with the community to help them solve problems for the long term. Everyone at GP is there because they believe wholeheartedly in the mission. It is truly inspiring to see people so dedicated to helping others.

Global Partners in Hope is an amazing organization that is uniquely different from most other nonprofits in Omaha. I am very impressed with their work at an international level and I am interested to see what they are able to do through their Salama Stove project.

I've known about Global Partners in Hope for years and it has been amazing to see the impact the team has had. Each year the impact gets bigger and looking ahead with what is planned with the stove is really game changing. A little over a year ago I joined the board, to me it was an honor to be asked to serve.
This is a non-profit that punches far above its weight with how it effectively utilizes each dollar and each hour of time given.

I have the utmost respect for this nonprofit because of the positive impact made by being in relationship with in-country partners. GPiH honors leaders who are on the ground and who have created both the agenda and the path to accomplish initiatives together. GPiH is gifted in creating partnership what build sustainable projects, created by and for the community, while acknowledging that their own addition is but a small part of the project's success. The financial and consultancy support for global projects is an important blessing, not just for the community served, but for those who engage and participate, no matter how expansive or how small. I have been involved in maternal child projects in two countries with GPiH. There is a breath and depth to the administrative team; they do not grow weary of serving with love.

This past summer I volunteered with Global Partners in Hope (GPiH). I was able to work with GPiH team and see all of the great work they do firsthand. This organization provides sustainable solutions as they come alongside a community (currently Togo in West Africa) and bring clean water, renewable energy, and a medical center that lifts up the region. GPiH ensures that these facilities are run by the community with local help as they continue on to another vulnerable area. I was struck by Global Partners initiative to engage the Omaha community, even as an international organization. Recently, GPiH, along with MATTER, organized a food packaging that was donated to Abide in North Omaha. This is an organization that has raised communities up through sustainable measures that empowers residents, especially women and children. They truly do provide bridges of hope.

The people - they are just so wonderful! They truly care for you as an individual, showing you how to serve well by serving well themselves. I've seen them in action in both the States and in west Africa. They are caring without being stifling, available without being authoritarian. And I'm still learning of all the ways they minister to others around the world to the glory of God. Thanks, GPiH, for being a vehicle of active compassion!

I first heard about Global Partners in Hope through a friend, and was immediately intrigued by the amazing work that this nonprofit was doing in Africa and China.

After volunteering for the past three months, I can honestly say this nonprofit is wholeheartedly committed to ameliorating the world around them to provide sustainable hope to those who need it most. The work that they do is truly remarkable. However, I found that the most fulfilling part of volunteering at this nonprofit has been getting to work amongst the amazing employees. They have inspired me, challenged me, and ignited a passion inside of me to make a difference in this world. I am forever thankful for the time I have been able to spend at Global Partners in Hope, and look forward to volunteering for them in the future.

I would highly recommend this organization!

I have been on multiple international mission trips since the beginning of my college career and also have done a lot of volunteer work while growing up. When I came into contact with Global Partners in Hope, I knew I was being called to go on one of their missions to Africa. As a volunteer for Global Partners in Hope, I have been blessed to be apart of the amazing work that this nonprofit does! The opportunity I had to travel with a team to Togo this summer really allowed me to experience what this organization does first hand!

The hope and help that Global Partners in Hope offers is truly extraordinary and it was amazing to be apart of!

GPiH's mission is to bridge the gap between those who need help and those who can provide help. As a former employee, I saw first hand the positive influence GPiH provided in training church and business leaders. GPiH helps develop skills to handle personal habits, such as time management, financial management, and human resource. Training is also centered on how to handle relationships in a variety of settings, such as business and church. This is accomplished through the use of biblical principles.

Global Partners in Hope was very active in the conception and implementation of projects in West Africa ( Togo).
By its commitment , GPIH installed a solar panel in a village in Togo called Wogba. The village of Wogba is without electricity.This project will help the school and the students to benefit from electricity for example studying at night time or to use to the electricity to power computers.
In addition GPIH is currently working to install a clean water well in the village of Agbelouve (TOGO).
In summary GPIH is doing a pretty neat job helping communities around the world( TOgo; Mali , China ,Kenya ..etc)
Thanks GPIH...

As a church located in a university town - I have so appreciated the vision of GPiH in wanting to involve the university, town and community to impact Mali with wells and clinics. They are very encouraging and sensitive to our situation - not a "one size fits all" type of organization!

The organization is committed to serving those who are the very most desperate, and then assuring that the work is self-sustaining, so that the benefits continue. The provision of medical clinics and care where there is none, the training of locals to serve in the clinics, the provision of water wells where there is none, and the provision of solar electricity where there is none...all of these lead to life changing circumstances and hope for the hopeless. Since I have supported this organization, I have seen it build a hospital and 6 medical clinics in one of the poorest countries in the world. Amazing.

My company helped sponsor a well in Togo with GPIH. Originally, I personally had no real connection with the project. However, in June, I was able to go with a GPIH crew to Togo to visit the site where the well is now being built and see first hand the project's impact.

I was very impressed by two things. First, the impact that every dollar has in that region. With a small contribution, you are able to effect major sustainable life difference to the people. Second, the surgical precision and in which GPIH works. With a small crew, GPIH goes directly to the heart of the matter and does what needs to be done without a lot of fluff.

One Christmas my family and I wanted to make a difference in the world. Knowing that GPiH worked building wells in Africa, my family and I sent money to help build a well so people in a village could have fresh water.

With no delay, the well was built and people had water. This was a rewarding experience to me and my family. It was one way for our family to help others in need. GPiH is a wonderful nonprofit helping other around the world.

I've had the pleasure of translating video footage and correspondance for GPiH on several occasions. I have read and heard firsthand testimony of the work this nonprofit has done in Mali, from people who have directly benefitted from the wells and medical centers funded by this nonprofit. It is truly overwhelming to consider how long rural communities have gone without these basic necessities--GPiH is actively meeting an incredible need, and having a huge, lasting impact on the lives of current and future generations.

GPIH is a young and energetic organization that already has a global scope. One of the most impressive aspects of their work is that they work through local people who have a vision to improve their own communities, rather than coming in as outsiders to impose solutions. They have been able to assist communities with practical projects in nutrition, healthcare, energy, and education in a way that is empowering rather than creating dependency. I highly recommend this organization.

This past summer our church's Vacation Bible School had the pleasure of raising money for clean water relief. When we initially made the decision to do that, I knew that we should give that money to Global Partners in Hope. They were somewhat local to us, & I trusted their philosophy & their own mission towards helping those in need. Through the entire summer, & on through VBS, Justin was always available to answer any questions we had, & also to get us any figures & stats that we needed to inform & encourage our congregation in their giving to our mission cause. We enjoyed being able to show the GPiH videos to our church & VBS. We know that our monies will be put to work in the best possible way in helping those less fortunate in Mali, Africa.

Global Partners in Hope is a nonprofit dedicated to meeting the needs of poverty stricken people in Mali West Africa and now expanding into Togo. In Africa, GPIH is passionate about meeting the needs of the people, both physically and spiritually. They raise funds to build water wells with a goal of making clean water accessible. They provide reliable electricity to areas where electricity is very unreliable by installing solar panels, and they provide consistent medical care to people in areas where none is available. They have done an amazing job of developing relationships with local leaders in the areas where they provide aid. They are highly respected by those leaders and welcomed with open arms. GPiH is doing a great job of engaging the communities of Omaha, Lincoln and surrounding areas. Educating all ages of the needs is an important part of the work and I commend them for being very effective in doing this. Churches, businesses, students, and schools are eager to help when they learn of the needs. GPiH also provides leadership training to many in China. At the request of Chinese leaders, seminars are held to provide training in ethical business practices, etc. I'm very impressed with the team GPiH has assembled. It's a pleasure to be a small part of such a fantastic group. We who have so much are obligated to help those in need. My dollars are put to great use by donating to Global Partners in Hope.

When I first found out about Global Partners in Hope, I sent them an email because I wanted to get involved with them. I was impressed with all that they had accomplished, and how they put both thought and heart into what they do. I got a friendly response right away from Justin. Now me and my student organization are helping them fund-raise to build a well in Mali. Justin has gone to great lengths to support my organization in fundraising by helping us plan events, give detailed presentations on campus, and showing up to group meetings.
The best thing about GPiH is how they work with the people they are trying to help; talk to them and listen to them, to make sure that they getting what they need. For example, before installing a well or medical clinic in Mali, they ask local leaders where the need is greatest. GPiH also makes sure there are people in Mali who know how to maintain all structures, so they are not dependent on outside help. GPiH empowers people, and that is why I am proud to help them.

As an instructional leader at our school, I found partnership with GPiH an excellent way to give students service-learning opportunities with both local and global relevance. The staff was highly visible and involved in partnering with us as we designed and implemented service-learning projects and community events to raise awareness and funds for our project. For many students, these events were the highlight of their school year. Not only were students able to give back to our global community, but they were also engaged in learning activities related to our learning standards. Partnership with GPiH was a rewarding experience for students, their families, teachers and staff. The project didn't stop when the funds were raised, GpIH is coming back to give students opportunity to see the impact they made through video and pictures of the installation of the solar panels for a school in Togo, Africa!

Global Partners in Hope has dedicated members that go far beyond the call of duty. Justin drives all the way from Lincoln, NE to Omaha just to make it to meetings. It's hard for me to make it from the painting studio down to the student center on time. He's never late?! As a result, we have gained valuable leadership skills and have been exposed to a number of networking options that make our operations run a lot smoother. Thank You Global Partners in Hope!

As the Director of Chldren's Ministries at our church, I was looking for a mission project for our Vacation Bible School last summer. Our pastor was familiar with Global Partners in Hope and suggested that I look into the possibility of working with them. Their staff did a great job of sharing their passion for their ministry to children and families in Mali . . . and they did a great job of giving us support as we presented our mission project to the kids. Because of their help, the project went very well. We not only surpassed our fundraising goal, but I felt that the kids' hearts for serving others grew as well. It is obvious that Global Partners in Hope have a passion for what they do - - that they are very organized and professional about how they operate their organization - - and that they are planning carefully and prayerfully for its future.

GPIH is a life changing experience for everyone involved! As an educator, my eyes have been opened to inequalities around the world. How precious a drop of water truly is to a child, a parent, a friend! Not only does GPIH educate the need for clean water, they assist even the youngest child to understand that helping others is essential!

I have volunteered twice for GPiH in 2013. GPiH relies on His wisdom and provision for all its projects. GPiH's work in China is greatly impacting business leaders, families and society. Through various programs GPiH offers, Chinese people learn how to apply universal truths and biblical truths to their own lives and also get trained to train/lead others. This Lead the Leaders, Train the Trainers model is bringing lost ethnic value, family value and individual’s true identity back to Chinese society. I enjoyed working with GPiH and I plan to work with this organization again in the near future.

Global Partners in Hope understands how necessary it is to engage with people and their suffering. That, I believe, is the key difference of their work, which they don't see only as public policy, but they see as a sigh of HOPE, something that is long gone in places such as Mali, China, and many others.
As a volunteer, I felt that even my smallest contribution was granted as significant for the whole NGO. The network they have built is strong, well prepared, diverse, and that environment makes each action pretty valueable for the communities where they work.

Global Partners in Hope first caught my attention when I heard they were putting water wells and medical clinics into remote villages in Mali, West Africa. I learned the people had to travel 10 miles, sometimes more on foot to a medical facility, including in emergency situations. I heard stories of pregnant women having to walk during labor to give birth in a facility, and some even riding motorcycles while in labor. As a mother and as a doula, this broke my heart. Global Partners in Hope was doing something about this, and I wanted to be a part of that, and so I joined in.

I have wanted to be a missionary in Africa since I was 7 years old, and this seemed to be a good way to start helping there. I led fundraising efforts for our church, and GPiH came alongside me and supported me where they could, spreading the word and giving me access to information. After our fundraising goal as a church was met, GPiH personally thanked me for my work, and even invited me to meet a man who lives in Mali, and was helping to coordinate their work there. The highlight was that I was invited to join GPiH during the dedication ceremony in the village that we specifically raised money for!

The most incredible story that I have heard from all of the work that GPiH has done is that in one village there was only 1 man that was a Christian. When GPiH announced that there would be raising funds for 3 water wells and medical clinics in their area, this man stood up and said, See! I told you they would come! I told you the Christians would come! And so, they have, and many of the villagers have heard the Good News of Jesus Christ, and have been saved! Not to mention now have access to clean water, medical care and pharmacies, something I take for granted daily.

Global Partners in Hope is an amazing non-profit organization that I hope to be associated with for a very long time to come. Mali is not the only place they are working as the hands and feet of Jesus, and I plan to follow them and join them whenever I can in bringing hope and life to desperate people.

I first met Ian in 2007, when I worked as an intern in his department at Christ Community Church. I've learned so much from him about cross-cultural communication, helping impoverished peoples by working with respected local leaders and engaging those around me in international development work. It's largely due to his influence in my life that I am pursuing my own international development career. Ian has decades of experience working and living abroad that give an inestimable advantage to Global Partners in Hope, allowing the organization to have the impact of an organization many times its size.

I've enjoyed working alongside Global Partners in Hope since the summer of 2010, when I approached Ian Vickers about starting a university-student led organization, the World Energy Project. Global Partners in Hope has since been our (the World Energy Project) parent non-profit, teaching us about everything from international communication and donor relations to fundraising and nonprofit finances. The World Energy Project wouldn't be able to carry out the work of designing and installing renewable energy systems in the developing world without the expertise of Global Partners in Hope.
