Encouraging Education and Providing Resources to the World's Most Vulnerable

Refugee Strong is a 501(C) (3) nonprofit organization committed to empowering refugee communities by providing support and hope through education



A Distinct Identity

Refugee Strong knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. Back in 2000, our Non-Profit Organization realized that by working together we could overcome our challenges much more efficiently, and that is why we ultimately decided to launch Refugee Strong.

How You Can Make A Difference


Refugee Strong is a charitable
organization. Your voluntary donation will go directly to helping students in the Dadaab refugee camps succeed in school.


In 2021, we traveled to the Dadaab refugee camps in Kenya. We aimed to empower students living in refugee camps to achieve their educational dreams and strive to embolden and inspire refugee students to continue their studies. With the right resources and support, we hope to continue to leverage education for all.

Menstruation leads many girls to miss school, and through understanding and donating to menstrual hygiene products and women's health knowledge, we hope to keep the girls in the classroom.

We strive to emphasize the importance of women's education and the opportunities it opens not only for individual girls but for the community as a whole.


When Stars Are Scattered

Omar and his younger brother, Hassan, have spent most of their lives in Dadaab, a refugee camp in Kenya. Life is hard there: never enough food, achingly dull, and without access to the medical care Omar's nonverbal brother needs. So when Omar has the opportunity to go to school, he knows it might be a chance to change their future... but it would also mean leaving his brother, his only remaining family member, every day.
