2022 Business Team Vietnam_edited.jpg


In Vietnam, REI partners with hospitals, universities, and organizations to develop leaders in their fields. We equip professionals with a vision to pass on their knowledge and skills to create a multiplying impact. Our holistic approach builds people to build their nation.


Our resident team and short-term professional teams provide training in the fields of agriculture, business, education, medicine, and social work. Since 1992, REI has sent more than 600 professionals on more than 1,400 trips to provide training, coaching and mentoring.

My first trip to Hanoi, as part of a REI short-term team, was spring 2008. It was my first time in Vietnam. I remember well the smell, food, people, noise, and organized chaos of traffic. It was similar and yet very different from Cambodia and Thailand, where I had just been before stepping off the plane in Hanoi that spring.

REI Resident Staff invest long-term in Vietnam through English education, professional development, and social work programs. Our professionals interact daily with faculty, students, and future leaders. REI’s Apprentice Program offers a 1-2 year service opportunity in multiple degree fields. 

I often get this question: “In Vietnam, REI has been partnering with various medical and business partners for over 20 years. Do the short-term teams make an impact both professionally and personally, seeing lives transformed in Vietnam?” The answer is a resounding yes!
