Programs

Relief International (RI) provides emergency response services such as food rations, clean water, non-food items, transitional shelter and emergency medical services. Also, RI provides long term health and nutrition services by operating clinics, training health workers, and providing access to clean water.

RI education and empowerment program activities include: teacher training programs, building libraries and Internet centers, providing books and classroom furniture to under-resourced schools, and promoting equal access to education. RI livelihood and enterprise programs provide vocational training, microfinance opportunities, and develop promising value chains.
