Nourish chapters partner with communities to conduct sustainable projects abroad. Students are selected to intern with their project partner based on skills and merit for 6-8 weeks each summer.

Nourish chapters partner with local, community-based organizations who lack the necessary funds and resources to meet their needs, but have the entrepreneurial vision to eradicate poverty. Together, students and communities are making a lasting impact on extreme poverty.


Since 2003, Nourish has completed 113 international projects in 28 countries. Nourish has invested over $460,000 and the time and skills of 622 student interns in development projects abroad. Read more about our impact in our yearly Impact Reports. International Project outcomes range from clean drinking water for a community in Peru to improved marketing for a women’s cooperative in Turkey. Nourish Chapters have the ability to choose which projects they want to fund and implement. Each project is specially designed to meet the community needs expressed by our local partners.

Nourish International is a member United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Network, a community of partnerships and organizations committed to supporting the sustainable development goals through multi-stakehoulder partnerships and ensuring that no one is left behind.
