The brainchild of former Marine Jake Harriman, Nuru International has already shown it can successfully fight extreme poverty, as seen at www.nuruinternational.org , with its program in Kuria, Kenya. The non-profit organization feels confident that it can adapt its model to a new location and has chosen to establish headquarters in Boreda, where the climate and agriculture are similar to that of Kuria. Nuru International works tirelessly to identify local leaders, members of the community that have the potential to inspire. Nuru then mentors these individuals, providing them with the leadership skills, critical thinking strategies, and teambuilding expertise to battle the area’s issues in an effective way that gets lasting results.
