We send long-term staff and short-term professionals 

to train leaders in emerging nations so that they

can train others - building their nations and

bringing hope to future generations.


The work of REI is diverse in each emerging nation where we focus. Through education and medicine, business and agriculture, our highly skilled staff are training and developing others in six locations in Asia and Africa.

As a non-profit, our organization and staff are financially supported by monthly and annual donations. Give today to be a part of building people to build nations! 

REI staff and apprentices partner long-term in six locations in Asia and Africa, and volunteers take annual short-term trips. If your professional goals for international development match ours, come with us!

Good Friday 2022 was a day to remember. We received an eye-opening email from Patsy Kent asking if we would consider returning to Laos for a few years. We had served with REI there before, starting in 2008 and coming home in 2012. At that time Craig and Patsy Kent were serving as REI country leaders for Laos.

Now, here we are, back in the Vientiane capitol . . .
