About Strong Roots NYC

Strong Roots Inc. aims to provide students in Nepal with opportunities in education. We do this with your help.

About one in five children, aged four years, is not enrolled in preschool throughout Nepal. 40% of children entering grade 1 in Nepal have had no foundational education and only three quarters of those who enter at grade 1 make it to grade 8.

Without a strong educational foundation, children are entering their school career at a severe disadvantage. When these young children are unable to succeed it becomes understood that they would be more useful in the home or with a job.

In Balkhu Slum, the home of Strong Roots Preschool, if students are not enrolled in school they are typically found on the streets, begging and scavenging for scraps of food.


Our Role

Strong Roots preschool provides these students with a productive, safe, and healthy alternative: a quality, foundational education. Strong Roots NYC, a New York based non-profit, supports the efforts of Strong Roots Preschool through a student sponsorship program, various projects, and professional development for Strong Roots educators.
