Nourish International’s mission is to engage students and empower communities to make a lasting impact on extreme poverty.

 Since incorporating as a 501(c)3 non-profit in 2006, Nourish International has grown into a national movement with 60 chapters on college campuses in the US and Canada and a National Office in Chapel Hill, NC. Since 2003, we’ve invested over $568,000 and trained 699 project interns to implement 140 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.

Our approach is unique in that it addresses the massive needs of communities with sustainable, scalable solutions, while catalyzing tomorrow’s leaders to take action now. Nourish students partner with communities who lack the necessary funds and resources for development projects but who have the entrepreneurial vision to impact poverty. We invest time and funds to support leaders within communities and empower local solutions.
