Pacific Ridge Students from Nuru Tour on Vimeo.


These are just some of the incredible students we had the privilege of meeting at Pacific Ridge School in Carlsbad, CA. We had the opportunity to speak in front of both the high school and middle school students on Wednesday.

Derek, Tiffany, and I were blown away by the hearts of these students. They have the creativity and desire to devote their gifts and talents to things that are bigger than they are in the world. These students are definitely world changers!

After we spoke in front of all the students, we had lunch at the school with the students you see in this video. They interviewed us for their school newspaper. They asked insightful questions about the Nuru model and asked about ways that they can partner with Nuru. You could tell that they were really internalizing the issue of extreme poverty and the power they each had to make a difference. 

I would have loved to spend more time with each of these students to hear their stories and take notes on their ideas. I think I speak for the team when I say that we were a bit envious of the teachers that get to see these kids everyday.

After they interviewed us, we asked if we could get them on our flipcam. They decided to say “We are Nuru” in six different languages. Wow these youngsters are something else!

I am so excited to hear about the ideas these students will come up with in the future to spread the word about Nuru.

Thank you Pacific Ridge Students for your incredible hearts to serve others and for inspiring the Nuru Tour Team! Keep up the awesome work!!
