Nourish International is a nonprofit organization working to eradicate global poverty by implementing sustainable projects in resource-poor countries around the world. We are part of a global movement dedicated to playing a pivotal role in creating opportunities for a better future by empowering students and communities with resources to make a powerful and lasting impact on extreme poverty

Can you go a week without coffee and instead donate to Nourish?
Can you think of a friend to split a donation with towards Nourish?
Can you go out to lunch or dinner one less time this week and donate to Nourish?

There are just 5 days left of the 2016 Giving Challenge and we are determined to meet our fundraising goal to support our Partner Organization, Runa Foundation. We need your help to get us to the finish line!

When you donate to the Giving Challenge, you join us in our Partnership with community leaders in Archidona, Ecuador who are implementing their own sustainable solutions to poverty.
