What We Do

Locally-led solutions to help end extreme poverty in the toughest of conditions

Nuru believes that people everywhere deserve to live their lives with the opportunity to choose a better future.

Nuru works in places where many other organizations are either unable or unwilling to go, because we believe we have a part to play in creating a more just and equitable world.

Our team is composed of people who have come from both the Peace Corps and the Marine Corps, from the humanitarian sector and the business sector.

We believe that everyone has a contribution to make toward ending extreme poverty, and that we should be using our resources to do just that.

Nuru’s contribution toward ending extreme poverty is centered in areas that are likely to be the last hold-outs for lasting change as the world pushes toward ending this atrocity in our lifetime.

We believe that the best way to solve a problem like extreme poverty is to come alongside a community and work together with them for a solution—the best solutions emerge from resourceful local people, and Nuru works to unleash that knowledge so farmers and their families can live a life of opportunity and purpose.

We envision a future for these communities where young people won’t remember a time when their community lived in poverty. Together, we can make that future a reality, and cultivate lasting meaningful choices in the most vulnerable and marginalized communities in the world.
