"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!

Doulas and medical professionals learning about natural childbirth at the Birth Guardian Academy and Sanctuary

The act of giving birth should not be a traumatic experience for mom, dad, or baby.  Recently founded and now led by REI Staff member Lydia, the Birth Guardian Academy and Sanctuary is working hard to change that paradigm in Egypt. Statistics show that 89 percent of women in Egypt describe their birth experience as traumatic. Ninety to ninety-five percent of them suffer some form of postpartum depression after the birth, with no place to go for help.

"People of emerging nations filled with hope

as their countries are developed and their lives transformed"
