New Reality International was founded in 2007 as a 501c3 public charity in the United States, and in 2011 as a Registered Charity in Canada. We seek to serve and empower the most vulnerable women and children around the globe and in doing so, provide them with a NEW REALITY.
Since our inception we have been able to directly serve an estimated 22,000 people suffering from extreme poverty around the world with health education, medical care, dental care and surgical care.
In 2011, through the Up From Under project, NRI built homes for families who became homeless during the tragic earthquake in Haiti and provided educational sponsorships as well as micro-loans to help families with income generation.
Globally, our work has reached some of the most vulnerable populations suffering from extreme poverty in Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Mexico, Myanmar/Burma and Nigeria.
NRI has also built and developed a small village in Haiti for some of the most vulnerable women and children in partnership with local Haitian leaders whose goal is to eventually reach self sustainability. The village sits on over seven acres of land that were developed by NRI by providing local desperately needed jobs and by buying local products and materials whenever possible to uplift the local community. The land has a tilapia fish farm, agricultural land, animals, solar capabilities, two water wells, a large scale water purification system and more.
All who work for NRI raise their own financial support and do not take any wages or compensation including the founder, directors, board members, and staff. NRI operates with little overhead cost, spending under 3% of undesignated donations on administrative expenses. To view NRI's IRS 990 form please visit www.guidestar.org. NRI has earned the Guide Star Exchange Seal of Excellence demonstrating our commitment to transparency.
