In a country where over half the population is under 25 years old, roughly one third of young people ages 15-24 are illiterate and only 50% of children are able to go to school. The cost of education in Haiti is very high and for the most part is highly inaccessible to the average Haitian. RMI provides the framework for sponsoring a child in Haiti to receive the education necessary to change their lives for the better. A $384 donation (or $32 monthly by bank draft) provides tuition for a quality Christian education, uniforms, school supplies and hot lunches for a child in Haiti. The Hope for Kidz program is providing HOPE today for many kids. Through sponsorship, they can have a future.
Animals provided through this program are both a source of much-needed protein in a Guatemalans' diet and a means of generating income. The vast majority of families served by the program are single-parent households with a mother, several children, and no consistent source of income. The common diet is mostly corn tortillas. What a blessing it is to add eggs or meat! And what a blessing when the animals multiply and can be sold at the local marketplace. $60 provides an animal to be chosen by the family - a young pig, a sheep, or two piglets - and an initial supply of feed.

During the Liberian civil war in 1990, Eric Wowoh was captured as a child by rebels, and was then beaten, tortured and left to die. Miraculously, he escaped and spent 14 years living in 11 different refugee camps. In 2002, around age 23, Eric was given a computer by a friend of his. He learned how to use the computer and began training other refugees from all over the continent of Africa. Eric has impacted the lives of many across the world and has established Change Agent Network from the origins of that one single desktop computer. In 2006, the U.S. Government, through a refugee resettlement program, brought Eric to America.
