Nu Skin Wins Excellence Award

Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. was recently praised for a second year with two Communitas Awards for outstanding corporate social responsibility programs through the Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation. The awards recognize the foundation's ongoing support of the School of Agriculture for Family Independence (SAFI) at Mtalimanja Village in Malawi, as well as a collective of grants to help improve the education of children around the world.

"Having just witnessed 60 students graduate from the School of Agriculture in Mtalimanja Village, this recognition is particularly meaningful," said Truman Hunt, Nu Skin president and chief executive officer. "Nu Skin's mission to be a force for good in the world by empowering people to improve lives is very evident as these families are now able to be self-reliant in supporting their families through small-scale agriculture."

More than 1,000 Malawian and international guests celebrated the graduation of the second class of students to complete the two-year SAFI program. Husbands and wives received their diplomas together and were congratulated by school and local officials, including the First Lady of Malawi, Callista Mutharika.

The Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation provides sustainable aid to the people of Malawi with support for SAFI. While at Mtalimanja, husbands and wives attend class together and their children are able to attend school. When the families return to their home village a second year of study is accomplished through an extension program. Malawians completing the SAFI program see as much as a 700 percent increase in their harvest of maize, soy and peanuts, which is enough to feed their family for a year, improve their living conditions and send their children to school.

Nu Skin was also recognized for its collective effort in improving education for children around the world through grants to improve literacy and educational opportunities. In 2010, the Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation funded 74 scholarships for secondary and post-secondary students in Malawi, built two new libraries for elementary schools in rural Korea serving more than 130 schoolchildren, and provided a grant to rebuild a school for 900 children in Haiti destroyed during the January 2010 earthquake.
