"building people to build nations"

Djiboutian girls who are part of the Girls Run 2 club, coached by REI staff.

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!

At REI we look to have a broad impact in communities. Sometimes our influence seems small in comparison with the global realities and huge issues facing the governments and communities we serve. One way in which we try to broaden impact is through training others to train others. Two opportunities for this have blossomed this year in Djibouti. . .
