In the spring of 2011, I was introduced to the Nuru Center by a friend. As she told me more about Nuru and the work they were doing in rural Kenya, I became more and more interested. I quickly realized that Nuru Center was an organization I wanted to be a part of, even if I lived 3,000 miles away from its headquarters.

I was honored to serve the Molo community for a second time in December 2011 with the Nuru’s Kikapu giving program. First, I got one of my wishes to serve with more people that are close to me, including my friends and nephews. Secondly, I had a meaningful experience yet again. In addition, I raised more money than I anticipated thanks to a wonderful group of donors in the US.
Nuru Center would like to recognize and thank the businesses that supported us in many ways. These includes their support via special event sponsorships, in-kind donations, and donated services.
Nuru Center is excited to announce the new acquisition of five acres of land located in the Molo area in Kenya. This is in alignment to our mid-term strategic goals of achieving self-sustenance by generating 65-80% of the program costs through farming. This is a great achievement and this would not be possible without the support of our faithful donors who have continued to support us over the last two years. Once again Thank You!
We had another successful Kikapu campaign thanks to you, our faithful and generous supporters. Because of you many families in Kenya celebrated their Christmas with a smile.
