Build the world's first self-sustaining, self-scaling, integrated development model to end extreme poverty in remote rural areas.

Nuru International (NI) addresses the challenges faced by individuals living in extreme poverty in remote, rural areas. These individuals are the most vulnerable members of society. NI is pioneering an innovative community development model that is integrated, self-sustaining, and self-scaling that addresses four areas of need: 1) hunger, 2) inability to cope with economic shocks, 3) preventable disease and death, and 4) lack of access to quality education for children. The NI model has the potential to impact the remote, rural, agrarian communities of entire countries, beginning with Kenya and Ethiopia. In NI's model local Nuru-established NGOs will expand the program to additional parts of the country after NI personnel establish the model in an initial district in each country. Nuru Impact Programs include: Agriculture, Financial Inclusion, Healthcare and Education.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
