The Rev launched in 2014 to work directly with global artisans, through their partnership with Be Free Revolution, to empower men and women with handmade trades and couple that with feeding and education programs in the poor communities of Africa. The Rev also works with other like-minded organizations to sell trades that are employing men and women globally and locally. World Relief Memphis launched in 2012 and is the only refugee resettlement agency in Memphis. They work with refugees to get job placement, driving licenses, language study, and more.
