The Strong Roots Charitable Foundation provides support to empower and enrich the lives of First Nations youth and elders with a strong emphasis on health and safety.
Strong Roots Charitable Foundation was created with the purpose to shape the future of the Akwesasne community by growing our youth into future leaders in a healthy and safe environment. The foundation is designed to provide a funding stream for needs within our community that focus on our youth, our elders, and our overall health and safety.
Strong Roots provides a mechanism for off-reservation companies, who have long enjoyed the benefits of doing business with Akwesasne, to show their support in partnering to make a difference for the youth and elders of Akwesasne. We will fulfill community-based projects that greatly improve the quality of life for our residents. Projects to date include the construction of a roof over the outdoor arena at Generations Park; support of a local community food pantry; and the creation of a greenhouse which produces non-GMO vegetables for our community.
