NewLife History

OUR HISTORY TIMELINE

It has been a glorious year to year progress that has left miraculous transformation in the lives of hundreds of women, and children. Women at risk due to various situations found hope in live after they met with and were touched by people who really cares. NewLife Project has made a difference over the years as seen below:

One evening whilst at the University of Sierra Leone, Fourah Bay College, three women – Sonia, Brenda and Adiatu reached out in love to young at risk ladies in Government Wharf, Sierra Leone. What emerged from that experience for Brenda, is what has come to be NewLife Project Inc.

NewLife Project Inc. experienced a new dimension of glory. Young Women Christian Association (YWCA) sent young women for training and vulnerable women in the surrounding neighbourhood also joined the project.

We organized various exhibition programs to display the talents of our students. A job placement program and micro financing business was added to our curriculum.

Commencement of the delivery of Medical assistance in Sierra Leone and Côte d’Ivoire to treat MALARIA, STD’S, ETC.
In collaboration with organizations like Geneva Global Inc., NewLife Project Inc. expanded its outreach and training programs to more communities, churches and local organizations.
We acquired USA 501 (C) 3 Not-for-Profit Organization registration. The Ministry of Education in Sierra Leone granted NewLife’s education licence and official certification for their graduates.

NewLife Project Inc. was also registered with Government of territorial affairs as a Non-Governmental Organization in Abidjan. We involved the Ministry of Health in our HIV/AIDS, STDS awareness campaigns in various parts of Abidjan. 

With our vocational training certificates, NewLife students acquired jobs in renowned companies and establishments in Sierra Leone. The project also opened a center in Azope, Côte d’Ivoire where we continue to train women in various subjects such Catering and tie and dye. Women acquired micro-financing for their business and the Project opened bank accounts in a renowned Cooperative Bank.

The project expanded to Canada and we had various exhibitions in the city of Gatineau and Ottawa on Cultural day celebrations, Salon de Femme during the Women’s day celebration and Black history month in Chase Bank Ottawa. The Sierra Leone and Azope sites have been temporarily closed due to a revision of programs and the Ebola virus. However, we continued to collaborate with other organizations such as Scripture Union and Women with a Mission in Development in sponsoring women and students to pursue their education. We are presently providing computer-training classes to economically disadvantaged women in Abidjan. With Scripture Union Sierra Leone, we are reaching out to students whose education have been affected as result of school closure due to Ebola Virus.

In February we shipped used clothing and items to Abidjan in collaboration with Network of Black Business and Professional Women. We also acquired Not-for-profit status with Corporation Canada in Aug 2014.

NewLife Project Inc. is pursuing its vision with passion and we are confident that our labor of love is not in vain.

‘Building up women of virtue.’
