Who We Are
We are a group of skilled, professional and caring individuals from underrepresented background, who have been drawn together by our passion for creating a world in which every person’s worth is matched and where materials, resources and knowledge is shared equally amongst all members of society.
We have different backgrounds and life experiences, but we share a common goal; providing sustainable development projects for underrepresented communities across the nation.
What We Do
We fundraise, campaign and build projects which provide a sustainable level of development to communities who need it. From addiction and grief, to poverty and failing education standards, we target groups and communities who need a helping hand to find their way in the world and be given the opportunity to succeed.
We are humanitarians, following the call to provide for those in need and do so in a way which makes sense for the future.
What is NUR?
Northwest for Underreported Regions is an organization founded from the belief that all communities deserve an equal opportunity to access education, resources and sustainable growth and self-sufficient development. We work with communities around the world to construct sustainable development projects, fundraise and secure the necessary materials to support underrepresented regions.
Why The Pomegranate As Our Logo?
NUR means pomegranate in Armenian and NUR was inspired by the symbolism of the pomegranate in Armenian culture. Many Armenian artists and writers interpret the pomegranate in various ways. Among many interpretations of the fruit is abundance, fertility and longevity, in addition to generosity. Due to its unique structure, the pomegranate also symbolizes the universe and unity. Through its programs throughout the world, NUR embraces the meaning of generosity and unity, and aims to promote those values across the globe with integrity and respect for all.
