Mission Statement

IRIS is a non-profit, non-religious organization founded in 1993 and located in Ames, Iowa. Its mission is to promote international education, development, and peace through rural initiatives.


IRIS conducts many grant programs which bring students, journalists, business people, educators, and government leaders from Africa, Central and Eastern Europe, and Asia to Iowa. While in Iowa, the international participants stay with Iowa families, study in Iowa schools, intern in Iowa businesses, and become involved in community activities. When they return to their home countries, they take with them new ideas and strategies for economic development and peace advancement. They also return with new friendships and a better understanding of Americans and our democratic way of life. IRIS also links Iowans to the world by facilitating international relationships and arranging for travel opportunities for Iowans.
