About Nuru Kenya
Despite having one of the most advanced economies on the African continent, Kenya is still a developing country. Compared with its neighbors, Kenya demonstrates relative political and social stability, though sometimes aggravated by ethnic conflict. Even though the agricultural sector employs 75% of the workforce, the country remains largely food insecure.
Just 40 miles southeast of Lake Victoria lies the district of Kuria West on the Kenya-Tanzania border. A single paved highway lined with concrete shops, tiny restaurants, and service providers cuts through the border town. The rest of the district is a web of dirt roads amid rolling hills dotted with farms and homesteads.
Because of the hunger, disease, child mortality, and illiteracy levels in the community, a visionary named Philip Mohochi invited Nuru into in his community to launch our first project. We planned that after enabling Kuria West to lift itself out of extreme poverty, Nuru would scale to Kuria East and eventually to countries struggling with more severe levels of poverty.
