What We Do
ED-REAP in Action
Engaging Diaspora in Research and Education Advancement through Partnership (ED-REAP) is a 501(c)(3) organization formed by a dedicated group of professors working in various US universities with the vision of linking the vast scholarly resources of the Diaspora and with appropriate African learning and research institutions.
The mission of this organization is to boost the research and educational development culture by supporting the research capacity-building efforts and bringing together a multi-disciplinary group of academicians to work with appropriate and interested African universities and research institutions.
We also strive to participate in humanitarian activities that benefit members of the Diaspora abroad and African society, with a primary focus on the Tigray, Ethiopia.
