Nourish students from our 45 chapters across the country have solidified their partnerships for Summer 2014. We seek to partner with organizations whose missions align with ours to make a lasting impact on extreme global poverty.
Over the next few weeks, we will announce all of our 27 Projects for Summer 2014!
Boston University and Hope College—Uganda Rural Fund
Boston University and Hope College will partner up with the Uganda Rural Fund, a non-profit organization dedicated to the education and sustainable development of communities in Uganda. Their goal is to empower impoverished youth and women in Uganda’s rural communities. This Project will help the community to build kindergarten classrooms and teaching classes.
Cal Poly Pomona and Claremont Colleges—Better Family Foundation
Cal Poly and Claremont Colleges will be working with the Better Family Foundation in Fundong, Cameroon. BFF is an apolitical NGO dedicated to empowering families socially and economically with education, counseling, and financial support for local families in need. This Project involves building a water system expansion in their community and conducting public health outreach and education.
University of Wisconsin and University of Kansas—Moche
University of Wisconsin and University of Kansas will be traveling to Ciudad de Dios, Peru to work with Moche. Moche is a non-profit organization invested in improving the standardof living in impoverished communities, promoting research and education, and protecting the archaeological sites in Peru. This Project will build compost latrines and run health fairs in a rural community. This is the 7th year that Nourish International and Moche have partnered together.
Ohio State University –Triple Salto
Ohio State University will be working with Triple Salto in Quito, Ecuador. Triple Salto is a non-profit that works with the government, the private sector, and citizens to create solutions to social, environmental, and economic needs, which guarantees sustainability. This Project involves the construction of greenhouses for a community in Quito. The greenhouses will provide fresh produce for the families, which, in turn combats malnutrition. The excess will also serve as an extra source of income for the families selling it. Nourish and Triple Salto are excited to continue working together in the 6th year of our partnership.
University of Pennsylvannia and Cornell University – Arajuno Road Project
University of Pennsylvania and Cornell University will be working with the Arajuno Road Project. The project will involve teaching at a summer camp, creating community gardens, and repairing school bathrooms. The Arajuno Road Project supports children and their families by providing quality English instruction, improving the infrastructure and environment of their schools, and working on community development and conservation programs in the Ecuadorian Amazon.
