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!
2020 brought unique challenges, but amazing growth! COVID-19, with its lockdowns and new hospital regulations, made for some interesting experiences. Restrictions made it impractical for in-person group parent classes, but private parent classes continued, because – let’s face it – babies have no respect for lockdowns. Thankfully, REI’s staff member, Karen, developed a great working relationship with a couple hospitals, and despite the restrictions, the hospitals are continuing to allow her to attend to her clients during their labor and birth.
Karen has a profound impact on women from the first
stages of their pregnancy to the birth of their child.
