    “Fragile
    states are lagging behind in achieving the Millennium Development
    Goals. Without urgent action they will be home to more than half of the
    world’s poor after 2018. Declining foreign aid and other external
    resources are not enough to drive development and stability in these
    countries.” – OECD, Fragile States 2014 Domestic Revenue Mobilisation in Fragile StatesThus

    Nigeria. Our goal is to take a “boots on the ground” approach and hire a

    strategy in mind. Nuru’s model depends on the organization’s ability to
