Now is the time to help and be #Navajostrong! NavajoStrong is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit Native-led organization formed to aid, serve, and empower the Navajo community on the Navajo reservation.
The Navajo Reservation is home to over 173,000 Native Americans who operate under their own tribal authority. It is reported that 30 % - 40% of the citizens do not have running water or electricity. Not only are the residents battling a drought, underground uranium poisoning, underfunded Indian Health Services, poverty, and health disparities, they are dealing with COVID-19. But, we are a resilient, strong, and proud people!
It's NavajoStrong's purpose to serve and empower the Diné people. Please consider supporting the Navajo Community!
Essential Supply Bins: As of January 2021, we have delivered over 1200 bins to families in need as well as delivering supplies to local chapter houses and distributing throughout the Navajo community.
The supply bins we've been dropping help those dealing with COVID or economic hardship. Each bin contains non perishable food, PPE, cleaning products, hygien items, pet and baby products when needed.
School Supplies: We have partnered organization including PBS Kids Utah and Running Strong, to supply kids on the reservations with backpacks full of school supplies. Over 200 have been distributed.
Housing Repair Project: We are working with volunteers and families in need of housing repairs to coordinate efforts and purchase supplies to repair homes.
Our mission: NavajoStrong was created to aid the Navajo Community during the COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis.
-Assist the vulnerable families and at-risk individuals during the COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis by providing them with water, food, and enough essential supplies, such as hand sanitizer, soap, and cleaner to last least 2 weeks.
-Empower the people by providing them written education regarding the disease, resources for help, and knowledge about the disease. We aim to provide information in both written Navajo and English language.
-Because some people cannot drive to community distributions or travel on the weekend, we serve those who live in remote areas who cannot travel due to quarantine, lack of transportation, or other factors.
We strive to honor our ancestors and empower the Diné by working hard to help citizens who are affected by disease, poverty, and other health disparities on the Navajo Reservation.
Help and be a part of this amazing movement! We are striving to empower the Diné people! #Dinebidziil
