Stepping Stones International
Nouri partners with organizations we trust who are based on the ground in developing countries and can get meals to children in need. To achieve this, we partnered with Stepping Stones International(SSI) in Botswana, to provide meals to 100 orphan school children, with a goal of reaching 1 million children by 2014. SSI is the first program of its kind in Botswana focused exclusively on adolescent development. They use a holistic approach by nurturing the mental, physical and emotional well-being of youth and create opportunities for them to become self-sufficient. Through the program, youth gain life skills, and leadership and entrepreneurship training to help them continue their education and gain full-time employment. Now that is one amazing organization! Together with Stepping Stones International, we have provided over 20,000 meals to school children who are hungry for knowledge!
Stepping Stones has received many awards for their remarkable approach to holistic childhood development. First Lady Michelle Obama recently visited Stepping Stones children during her time in Botswana and we're proud to support their work on the ground to bring nourishment to children in need.
Kids Against Hunger
With the support of Kids Against Hunger, NOURI brings food to children in need around the world. The mission of Kids Against Hunger, a humanitarian food-aid organization, is to significantly reduce the number of hungry children in the USA and to feed starving children throughout the world. The organization’s approach to achieving its goal – the eradication of world hunger – includes the packaging of a highly nutritious, vitamin-fortified soy-rice casserole by volunteers at numerous locations within the USA and Canada, and the distribution of those meals to starving children and their families in over 60 countries through partnerships with humanitarian organizations worldwide.
The Kids Against Hunger meals have been formulated by food scientists to provide a rich source of easily digestible protein, carbohydrates, and vitamins needed by a malnourished child’s body and mind. The food also accommodates to the broad diversity of ethnic tastes and religious differences around the world.
Kids Against Hunger’s meals offer all nine of the essential amino acids required for complete nutrition – something that can’t be said about other typical food relief sources such as rice or beans alone.
The beauty of the food formulation is its simplicity. It is made from four readily available, dry ingredients that are easy to package, keep for long periods, and require only boiling with water to prepare. Despite the simplicity of the food’s content, it is a nutritionally complex and well balanced meal. Last year alone, volunteers at Kids Against Hunger’s food packaging centers across the USA packaged forty million meals for children and their families around the world and around the corner.
