"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!


Rylee Marchbanks has already helped REI’s work in Djibouti.

When REI staff get into relationships around the world, we expect good things to happen. As people who look to the life of Jesus as inspiration for engaging with others, this can mean challenging work, addressing issues of justice, healing communities, or breaking bread together.


Rylee Marchbanks joined REI’s work in Djibouti in February 2021. She is an REI apprentice who is using her talents as a teacher to engage students at the International School of Djibouti (ISD).
