Through a variety of leadership, parenting, teacher training, food access (community farm and school meals), girls' leadership and empowerment, entrepreneurial, and sponsorship and scholarships efforts, REAP partners with young people and their families and others in the community to improve lives, generate opportunity, and promote community stability and resilience.
