Why Nuru

Together we can end extreme poverty in remote, rural areas in our lifetime.

If you believe in action over ideas.

If you believe the status quo merely exists to be broken.

If you believe in offering a hand up and not a hand out.

If you’re willing to listen and dream and hope and believe.

If you’re looking to get into the trenches with an organization dedicated to ending extreme poverty in remote, rural areas in our lifetime.

Then you are Nuru.
