Program Name: Nuru Kenya
Problem

Nuru works with farming households in remote, rural areas of the developing world. These households are among the most vulnerable members of society. They lack adequate tools and knowledge to improve their rain-fed agricultural yields and suffer from episodic hunger, an inability to cope with financial shocks (sickness, disease, death of a family member), mothers and children in particular become sick from preventable disease, and children lack access to quality educational opportunities.

Strategy

Nuru International begins its projects with a planned exit. It starts by developing a team of local capable of researching problems (like hunger), and then designing solutions to address those problems that are unique to the cultural milieu. These staff are also mentored and equipped to be able to manage and scale these interventions without the long-term presence of western staff.

IF:THEN

IF smallholder farmer households living in extreme poverty have access to tools and knowledge that can help them address hunger, increase the ability to cope with financial shocks, reduce preventable disease and death, and improve access to quality education... have access to meaningful choices and opportunity......

THEN then, families can and will graduate from surviving today to planning for tomorrow, they will be able to lift themselves out of extreme poverty and stay out, and they will have meaningful choices and opportunities that were previously unknown to them--Choices like, "Which food will I feed my children?" as opposed to "Will I be able to feed my children?" or "Where will my child attend school?" as opposed to "Will I be able to afford to send my children to school?"
