Roots & Wings envisions a world beyond poverty where all people thrive through the roots of social empowerment and the wings of economic opportunity.
Roots & Wings is a nonprofit global development fund headquartered in New York City. With an integrated approach, we bring social empowerment and economic development to overlooked and impoverished regions of the world.
We form partnerships among civic and business leaders to bring local businesses to scale, creating long-term local employment, generating goods and services needed locally, and investing in deeply needed social supports. With Roots & Wings, these communities become stronger and more resilient.
We have program sites in Cameroon, Kyrgyzstan, and Punjab, India, and we’re growing.
