Programs

IRFF’s programs are intended to affect change in a powerful and lasting way. Our microfinance programs give mothers the ability to provide for their families and we provide free schools and scholarships to allow children access to a primary education. IRFF’s service learning programs educate future global leaders about international development while they contribute to a needy community. Our disaster response activities focus those segments of the population not reached by other services.
