During the year, Nourish Chapters run ventures on their campuses, earning money used to conduct community development projects. Over the summer, students from Nourish Chapters travel abroad to partner with local communities and implement these solutions.<br />Our Theory of Change <br />We attack the problems presented by global poverty in two ways: First, through our projects, where we invest in solutions today that help communities for the foreseeable future; Second is through our students, who carry with them the knowledge that they can do something about global poverty for the rest of their lives.<br />Our Impact <br />Since 2003, we’ve sent more than $140,000 and 145 students abroad to implement projects in 22 communities. <br />To Whom It May Concern, <br />Nourish International works with students at colleges across the United States to solve some of the problems caused by global poverty.

The pipeline will take just $8,000 dollars to complete. If our chapter raises $4,000 dollars, MOCHE, Inc. has agreed to match it with the additional $4,000 necessary to complete the project. MOCHE, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the standard of living in impoverished communities in Peru. Students from our chapter, including myself, will be traveling to Cerro Blanco this summer to construct the pipeline with members of the community. <br />Our chapter has entered a contest between Nourish chapters across the country to raise money for our trip. The contest will be held from February 17th to March 9th and the Ohio State chapter has a very good chance of winning. The chapter who raises the most money toward their project during the given time period receives a $2,000 prize and the chapter with the most individual donations receives a $1,000 prize. As you can see, winning a prize in this contest could be instrumental in our success! If you have a moment, please take the time to check out our project page on the Global Giving website. We humbly ask that you consider making a donation to help us reach our goal. <br />http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/cleanwaterproject/<br />Thank you so much for your support,<br />Mackenzie Rapp<br />President<br />OSU Chapter- Nourish International <br />firstname.lastname@example.org<br />Peru<br /> <br /> <br />Potable Water Project<br />Our Project goal: Construct a sustainable, safe drink-water system for the community of Cerro Blanco.<br />1943100-346075Cerro Blanco is a community consisting of 100 families and 560 people.
