Building the world’s first self-sustaining, self-scaling, integrated development model to end extreme poverty.
Founded by a former U.S. Marine, formed at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business, and fueled by angel investors from Silicon Valley and donors around the world - this is our story.
After years of on-the-ground innovation, learn how our philosophy and methodology break from the status quo by identifying and addressing the underlying causes of extreme poverty.
Holistic development remains the elusive holy grail of the social sector. We think that Nuru has one of the most promising approaches we’ve seen.
Nuru’s model of helping families and communities build lives of dignity and self reliance is a rarity in community development.
As a small foundation looking for big impact, we invest in organizations like Nuru that tackle root causes, show results and bring innovative models to scale.
We are with Nuru in the fight to end extreme poverty.
