MissionExodus Trust INTL is a U.S. Business Trust with offices located in Washington DC. It was formed specifically to design, administer, and implement international projects for developing countries. Principals of Exodus Trust have worked to catalyze investment opportunities in Nigeria, Sierra Leon, Gambia, and South Sudan for several years on its own account by figuring out the key to conducting secure operations beneficial to all our stakeholders. We have worked intensively to understand the political and social order, conducted research, develop responsive programs, and establish a wide network of relationships. By keeping our indigenous partner engaged at all levels we believe we stand the best chance for sustainable development in the West African region and internationally.
