REVO is a grassroots movement that started in Hawaii on the simple basis of LOVE. REVO, coming from "revolutio" in Latin, means "a turn around," and says that we'd like to change the world by becoming the change. REVO means that we are not willing to watch social injustices as they happen, to stand by while people suffer, to go on life as if there is nothing we can do about it.
Living a life of REVO does not necessarily mean drastic change every day, but a way to rethink our lives, to redefine what we think is necessary, to see the needs of others and put them before our own. This could mean anything: smiling at strangers, inviting a homeless person to a meal, being nice to the people we can't stand, and so much more. Change is a big task, and we can't do it alone. REVO is a movement that allows us to connect with each other, and to a world outside that we might not have even known existed. It connects us with people across the nation and even the world, who are all striving for the same thing: Love.
Raised over $24,000 for Gakoni Orphanage in Rwanda, where over 75 children were in need of clean water, proper food, mosquito nets, better buildings, and much more.

Raised over $14,000 for AMOR Ministries in Pucallpa, Peru, which helped provide medical supplies for clinics and transportation to more rural areas for doctors.
There has been a civil war occurring in Syria that has displaced over 4 million refugees from their homes. Many families have been torn apart due to the violence, and some have even lost their loved ones. With nothing but the clothes on their backs, countless Syrians have been forced to leave their homes and find shelter in surrounding countries.
Jordan and its refugee camp is the only country that has been taking in all refugees that come seeking help while many others have been turning them away due to lack of room or supplies. The United Nations provides each individual with only $36 a month - hardly enough to supply oneself with substantial food, water, clothing, shelter, or warmth. With that said, REVO La Sierra is teaming up with ADRA (Adventist Development and Relief Agency) to help get these families back on their feet. Our own students, Caitlin Cuenca and Andrew Pedersen, have visited Jordan this last Christmas and delivered jackets for the winter donated by those in our La Sierra community. We would like to further help them by providing these families with essential needs to help them survive.
