Summary. Nuru is an organization working to end extreme poverty by empowering people with tools, education, and other resources that help permanently improve their standard of living.

One aspect of Nuru that is uniquely innovative and inspiring is the story behind how it was founded. Nuru was founded by Jake Harriman, an ex-Marine platoon commander who, after 7 years of military service around the world, observed a strong connection between poverty and the increase in world terrorism and war. Nuru was birthed out of Jake’s desire to do something to end the poverty that feeds terrorism.

We wrote an article about Nuru last year, and wanted to provide you with this video update.
