Video: Jake Harriman on Fighting the War Against Extreme Poverty

Social change speaker Jake Harriman is a former U.S. Marine and the founder of Nuru International, an organization that works with remote communities to lift them out of poverty and into a cycle of self-sustainability. At a recent Got Your 6 event, Harriman was asked to tell his story as a veteran who is making a difference. (Read more about the event at the Huffington Post.) In his moving keynote speech, he shared the inspiration behind Nuru and his mission to eradicate extreme poverty.

I didn’t want to build just a little non-profit that was going to help a couple of villages. I had left everything I knew in the world on this new journey. I wanted to make a global impact.

In his talks, Harriman tackles the problem of giving aid versus teaching communities how to do it for themselves. To book Jake Harriman as a speaker for your next event, contact The Lavin Agency.
