Ryan is a passionate global citizen, with a huge heart and vision for a better world. After the earthquakes in Nepal in 2015, he was called to action. Having spent many months in Nepal and worked closely with the local community, he turned his existing nonprofit from supporting orphanages to emergency relief to education. As of March 2019, The Away Inward Foundation has rebuilt 4 schools and is launching efforts to build a Teacher Training Center there, and began the process to build a centralized media center in Uganda.  In total, he has the potential to affect the lives of 30,000 children in the near future.
