Mobilizing volunteers to make a difference
eMi works through partnerships with local churches and Christian organizations who are serving the poor and sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. On average, eMi provides our partners with about $80,000 worth of professional services for each overseas project that we operate. In return, recipient organizations provide one to two weeks of food, lodging and in-country transportation for our teams, as well as the cost of one international airfare for our staff project leader. Additionally, eMi requests that client ministries partner with eMi by donating a portion of the project's design cost based on the project scope, size, and duration. The rest of the project costs are covered by eMi and our volunteers, including salaries, travel, and design costs. By mobilizing volunteers to design the bulk of our projects, we keep our overhead low and deliver cutting-edge designs that are cost-effective, locally buildable, and meet the needs of our partners. Request help.
eMi actively recruits volunteers from a growing network of over 15,000 design professionals from around the world. These talented professionals find fulfillment and satisfaction in using their God-given talents to make a difference in the world. Our two-week long project trips are a life-changing experience.
