"building people to build nations"

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!

REI staff are spread around the world in seven different countries.  Because of that dispersion, it is not easy for them to stay connected with each other and with the organization.  That is why we hold a staff conference every two years called the Global Forum.  For a week, friends get caught up with other friends.

REI staff and invited guests at the Global Forum in July. Not to worry. Except for this brief picture, masks and/or social distancing were the order of the day!

"People of emerging nations filled with hope

as their countries are developed and their lives transformed"
