Begin Anew and WorldCrafts are partnering to empower impoverished individuals in Middle Tennessee and around the world.

You or your church can sign up to host a benefit to support Begin Anew by filling out the form below. Your participation in this benefit will support both Begin Anew and WorldCrafts.

The benefit supports Begin Anew's vision to provide education, mentoring, and other resources to empower people in their region to overcome the obstacles created by poverty. The program is faith-based, and they offer three tracks for students:

  • High School Equivalency Test preparation
  • Computer and Job Skills
  • Life Skill English

Begin Anew participants are treated with grace, mercy, and unconditional love. They believe that everyone deserves a chance to Begin Anew and walk a journey to a brighter future.

Like Begin Anew, WorldCrafts, the fair trade division of WMU, brings grace and restoration to hurting people throughout the world. WorldCrafts exists to develop sustainable, fair-trade businesses among impoverished people. Its vision is to offer an income with dignity and the hope of everlasting life to every person on earth.

Begin Anew Refugee Artisan Group

Begin Anew has recently become a WorldCrafts artisan group, Begin Anew Refugee Artisan Group. Through this partnership with WorldCrafts, refugee women in South Nashville are learning the art of hand screen-printing, enabling them to earn a sustainable living wage so that they can provide for their families. Begin Anew products are available for purchase through WorldCrafts.
