"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!

Often an internationally-known physician will be willing to help REI by training someone who works in a developing country. A few years ago Dr. Craig Kent, REI Field Director for Laos, spent six weeks in Dr. Adrian Parks’ lab in Maryland where he showed him how to teach laparoscopy to others. It was a game changer.


"People of emerging nations filled with hope

as their countries are developed and their lives transformed"
