Nuru International’s National Tour Poverty Campaign departed from Morgantown, West Virginia this afternoon on a 3 month, 20,000 mile, 50 city tour to catalyze a movement of hope to end extreme poverty in our lifetimes. Three young poverty fighters will drive around the country in a beat-up, old passenger van for ten weeks to answer the question, “can extreme poverty be eliminated?” The answer is yes with Nuru International.

You can find out more about where they will be by visiting Nuru’s facebook page. Will they visit your town? Will you consider making the drive to hear the story.

Go to the Grassroots Page to check out their regular video and blog updates from the road, and check out the Nuru Calendar to see when they’ll be coming to your town.
