Nourish International

Student-led organization

Nourish International is a student led movement on 60 college and high school campuses across North America. We partner with communities in the world’s most economically disadvantaged countries to make a lasting impact on extreme poverty. Nourish International invites students around the country to be a part of the solution to global poverty, providing them with the training, support and creative space they need to make a difference.Through Nourish, students around the country operate social businesses on their campuses and invest their profits in poverty reduction projects in the developing world. Each summer, students travel abroad and work alongside local community organizations to implement these projects.

Since 2003, we’ve invested over $460,000 in 113 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 were featured at TEDxRaleigh, Ashoka U Exchange, and the United Nations.
