  • 1. [Type text] 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 throughout the year go straight towards our summer project. We are also expanding our ventures this year to include a Nourish Olympics event and a OSU flag football tournament. Past Projects: In July, 2009, six members of Nourish International traveled to Cochabamba, Bolivia to partner with Global Gallery for their Bolivia orphanage project. The volunteers spent time there building an orphanage and running an after school program for the children in the surrounding community. This past summer, six students volunteered to build a water pipeline and reservoir in Peru that will supply the community of Cerro Blanco with access to clean, safe drinking water 24 hours a day. Get involved! Be a part of the solution to global poverty and join Nourish International today! We have meetings in Lazenby Hall room 034 every Tuesday at 5:30.
