Nuru International works to eradicate extreme poverty by empowering rural communities to achieve self-sufficiency. NURU works with local leaders to mobilize communities into groups to tackle the obstacles which are perpetuating the cycle of extreme poverty in their community.

NURU's Evaluation (M&E) team scours both the social and private sectors to identify the most effective interventions in our five areas of development: Agriculture,Community Economic Development,,Healthcare, Water,Sanitation, and Education

Nuru coordinates these interventions alongside local leaders and the community groups, acting as a general contractor of proven poverty solutions. Ongoing measurement and third-party evaluation keep us updated on our progress, and income-generating businesses integrated into our program areas provide revenues that will make our project self-sustaining.
