Nourish International engages students and empowers communities to create a lasting impact on extreme poverty. Nourish is a network of student-led chapters addressing global poverty through social entrepreneurship. Nourish students lead socially responsible and sustainable business ventures, partner with international communities, and participate in development projects abroad.
Nourish International was founded in 2003 by students at the University of North Carolina. Since incorporating as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in 2006, Nourish has grown into a national movement with 60 chapters on college campuses and high schools in the US and Canada, and a National Office in Chapel Hill, NC. Since 2003, we've invested $550,000 and trained almost 700 project interns to implement 140 projects all over the world. As a movement, we have placed 3rd in the Facebook Giving Challenge, received the North Carolina Peace Prize for excellence in cross-cultural solutions and sustainable development, and was featured at TEDxRaleigh, Ashoka U Exchange, and the United Nations.
