GET UPDATES FROM Nourish International
 
Nourish International is a student led movement on 45 college campuses. We partner with communities in the world’s most economically disadvantaged countries to make a lasting impact on extreme poverty. Nourish International invites college 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, college students around the country operate social businesses on their campuses. Students invest the profits that they earn in poverty reduction projects in the developing world, which they travel abroad to implement alongside community organizations. Learn more about Our Model. Since 2003, we’ve invested $353,000 and 476 project interns in 85 projects all over the world. Learn more about Our Impact. 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 was featured at TEDxRaleigh, Ashoka U Exchange, and the United Nations.
