RPI welcomes Thomas Rémont as Executive Director

Refuge Place International is happy to welcome Thomas Rémont as the new Executive Director for RPI Liberia. Thomas was previously the country director for One Dollar Glasses in Burkina Faso where he oversaw the growth of the organization from 10 people to 75 people, expansion of the catchment area to cover half the population of the country, and worked towards sustainability, with the social business recovering 75-80% of operational costs. Thomas was drawn to RPI’s co-investment model and community empowerment approach, and he shares RPI’s values and vision for prioritizing the most vulnerable and engaging communities. He is looking forward to working with the team at RPI to continue growing the organization, working towards sustainability, continuing RPI’s work towards gender equity and empowering people with disability.
