Nuru International was founded by Jake Harriman, a former Special Operations Platoon Commander with the U.S. Marines. After fighting the war on terror around the world, Jake became convinced that the only way to end terrorism is to end extreme poverty. He left the Marines and enrolled at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business to create an organization to end extreme poverty.
Nuru works amongst the rural poor in the developing world, currently working in Kuria, Kenya, where they found their name: Nuru is a Kiswahili word meaning light.
Extreme Affordability collaborated with Nuru International on proper disposal of human waste & hand sanitation solutions.
