Nourish International general flier

  1. 1. Nourish International Our Mission: Our mission is to eradicate poverty by engaging students and empowering communities. History: Nourish International began in 2003 at the University of North Caroline by Sindhura Citineni. She began by selling rice, beans and cornbread for $3 and used the profits to fund Nourish's first project: a nutrition project in Hyderbad, India. Since then, Nourish has expanded to over 50 chapters at different universities nation wide. Ventures: By running ventures on campus, Nourish International raises money to conduct sustainable development projects abroad in the summer time. Over the summer, students travel abroad to partner with local communities in implementing solutions to poverty. Our main venture is called a Hunger Lunch where we provide locally made food to students for donations. All donations collected from Hunger Lunches, and all ventures, go towards our summer project. We are also expanding our ventures this year to include a Nourish Olympics event and a movie screening at the Gateway. Past Projects: In July, 2009, six members of Nourish International traveled to Cochabamba, Bolivia to partner with Global Gallery for their Bolivia orphanage project. We spent our time there building the orphanage and running an after school program for the children in the surrounding community. The after school program included lessons about hygiene, community development, and leadership. Summer Project, 2010: This year, all money we've collected from ventures throughout the year will go towards our Peru Project. We will be building a water pipeline that will supply a community with clean, safe drinking water. For more information on our Peru Project and travel plans, contact our International Project Director, Bishara Korkor at korkor.4@buckeyemail.osu.edu Get involved!
