Model and moderator Sara Nuru was born on 19 August 1989 to Ethiopian parents in Erding, near Munich.
Since 2009, she has supported famous German actor Karlheinz Böhm’s charitable organisation ‘Menschen für Menschen’ in Ethiopia.
She travelled to German schools throughout the country for years to collect donations together with schoolchildren for the educational project “Generation ABC-2015”. In 2012, the first Sara Nuru School was opened in southwestern Ethiopia. As part of this education programme, 3 schools were built, providing access to better education for 1,100 pupils. In addition to her success as a model and moderator, in 2016 Sara Nuru began focusing more intensively on empowering women in Ethiopia. For this purpose, she founded a social business called nuruCoffee together with her sister Sali Nuru. With the sale of fair trade coffee, they support micro-loans, education and training for women in Ethiopia. They have founded their own charity, known as nuruWomen, to implement the projects.
