Start a Nourish International Chapter at GW [Opportunity]

17 Feb

25,000 people die each day from hunger. You can change this.

Apply to start a chapter of Nourish International on your campus today!

Nourish is a student movement to address global poverty through social entrepreneurship. We are located on 22 U.S. college campuses and are now accepting applications to expand.

Nourish Chapters raise money on campus during the school year to fund international development projects. This past summer, students traveled to Turkey to develop a marketing strategy with Nilüfer Women’s Cooperative. The students’ efforts allowed the cooperative to expand, increasing the number of children receiving early education and the number of women employed.

By running a business venture to fund a project, you could have a similar impact. Here’s how to get started:

  • Apply to start a Nourish Chapter: Until April 17th, Nourish will accept applications for its Chapter Founders Program. Chapter Founders will receive professional training, support and $500 start-up capital. Start your application now by clicking here!
  • Tell a friend: Know someone who would make a great Chapter Founder? Nominate a friend now by clicking here!

Visit for highlights of past development projects and student profiles. Act now – applications are being reviewed as they come in!
