About Us

Nuru International equips local leaders with tools and knowledge to lead their communities out of extreme poverty and build resilience by integrating programs that address some of the most prevalent and fundamental challenges of extreme poverty. Rather than give handouts, Nuru designs training-based poverty solutions that promote self-reliance and service-mindedness to enable local leaders to continue scaling impact long after Nuru International staff has exited the project. Ending extreme poverty is more than addressing a lack of money or material resources. It’s about creating an enabling environment where people have the ability to make meaningful choices. Choice is powerful and opens the door to hope, opportunity, change and a better future.

Nuru's mission is to eradicate extreme poverty in fragile rural areas to build communities resilient to violent extremism. Nuru's vision is to create a safer, more secure world where violent extremist groups can no longer exploit the conditions of extreme poverty. Nuru is a 501(c)(3) organization that plans to make a significant impact in the fight against extreme poverty. Come be a part of a meaningful, innovative and rapidly growing organization that is determined to change the face of poverty.
