Réveil International is a humanitarian organisation committed to helping individuals and families in poor communities improve their lots and achieve lasting victories over social vices and poverty.Réveil is founded to promote world solidarity through the involvement of both Ghanaian and foreign volunteers in developmental projects, inter-cultural exchange programs and also to recognise and develop the vast potential inherent among the youth towards the creation of a broad youth based network, capable of serving as an outlet for radical social change. Réveil International is one of the only NGOs in Ghana that are now incorporating sustainable development issues as an educational focus of its programs. Secondly, Réveil International has a history of hosting volunteers from all over the world in partnership with other local NGOs, and has placed youth related issues such as HIV/AIDS, teenage pregnancy, aid to remote schools and helping young people rebuild their lives as a focus to its programs. Finally, as a humanitarian organisation, Réveil International fights global poverty by giving a lot of preference to women because when well equipped with the proper resources, they have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty. Let’s not forget that about 28.5% of Ghanaians are in extreme poverty.
