In the face of these sobering facts, we improve the quality of health in the developing world by increasing the capacity of local healthcare providers. We do this by providing training, education, equipment and solutions through a wide range of programs and projects that strengthen health systems and bring life-saving tools and strategies to communities in need.

Our Impact​

While the COVID-19 crisis continues to evolve, Assist International and Stanford Anesthesia Division of Global Health Equity are helping healthcare providers in the Global South prepare to provide lifesaving care to patients in need. Over the last several months we have collaborated with academic partners to develop and deploy a comprehensive tele-mentoring series in Critical Care and Oxygen Therapy. So far, we have reached an audience of ~3,000 people across 128 countries worldwide!
We have also recently launched a new series in partnership with six clinical experts to direct and deliver the course to their local contexts in Rwanda, Nigeria, Tanzania, Kenya, and Zambia. We are also working to expand this effort across Sub-Saharan Africa and Mexico!

Sewing Hope Book and Documentary

Sister Rosemary Nyirumbe’s inspiring story is told in Sewing Hope, a documentary produced by filmmaker Derek Watson and narrated by Oscar winner Forest Whitaker, and a book of the same name co-authored by Reggie Whitten, co-founder of Pros for Africa, and professional writer Nancy Henderson (Dust Jacket Press, 2013). All proceeds from book sales go to help the girls at St. Monica’s.

How We’re Doing It

Why It Works

Family-Style Orphan Villages

Family-Style Orphan Villages

Each village provides a safe and loving refuge for children who have been orphaned or abandoned. Currently, we have partner family village homes in Oradea and Timisoara, Romania; Surat Thani, Thailand, and Atiak and Jinja, Uganda.



We believe that educating children not only provides them with knowledge, it also gives them stability, teaches them how to overcome obstacles, prepares them for better jobs, and most importantly, gives them hope for the future.

We create lasting change by equipping indigenous organizations and individuals with the tools, infrastructure, and resources to improve the lives of children in need.
