A Tryst With Destiny:
"Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny, and now the time comes when we shall redeem our pledge, not wholly or in full measure, but very substantially. At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance. It is fitting that at this solemn moment, we take the pledge of dedication to the service of India and her people and to the still larger cause of humanity."

Milka Marwa is one of Nuru International's members in Kuria, Kenya. Our newest video depicts her journey since becoming part of Nuru.
"Since Nuru has come, my life has really changed. My husband and I both work on our farm. We were getting three bags of maize per acre. When Nuru came, they gave us a loan of good seeds and fertilizer. We were able to get 18 bags of maize per acre. Now [that] we have enough maize [to eat], we can sell part of it."
Milka's story is just one of the thousands of stories of individuals who have been impacted by Nuru's work in Kuria, Kenya. To learn more, visit: http://www.nuruinternational.org View the companion piece to this video, Francis: One Man's Story @ vimeo.com/15790318
