What We Do

Develop and Fortify

Revive Humanity helps develop and fortify individuals for a more meaningful and enriched life by facilitating service projects around the world. We aim to change the lives of both the recipients of the service and the volunteers who provide it.  Few things in life deliver long lasting joy, peace, perspective, and satisfaction like that which comes from truly giving of yourself in meaningful service! There are millions in the world who suffer from hunger, malnutrition, repressed economies, and other ailments. While we cannot reach them all we can help many.

Serving, giving, making a difference, experiencing various cultures, and having fun while doing it, is what we are all about.

Whether you are a student looking to build a robust resume, a family desiring to have an enriching experience, a company wanting to provide your employees with a hands on-service or a ‘giving back’ activity, or a service group or individual wanting a fantastic adventure, we have prepared the perfect edifying venture for you.
