Our Mission 

To see women and children rise to a place of divine accomplishment by fulfilling their purpose,
rebuilding their broken lives, and attaining total restoration.

Our Vision

Our Vision Building up women of virtue through effective support systems.

Our Objectives

Our objective is for women and children to be able to fulfill their purpose despite life’s challenges and still create opportunities for the future generation through determination, tenacity, and diligent work. We envision a world of international brotherhood and sisterhood where wealthy nations and individuals can connect to the lives of economically disadvantaged women and children. We also see a world where the lives of past commercial sex traders, unemployed women, and uneducated children are nourished through education and entrepreneurship programs. Furthermore, we envision a world of empowered women which holds numerous opportunities, meaningful life and fulfilled dreams.

 

Our Movement

Our Movement NewLife Project is a Not-for-Profit Organization, founded by Brenda Williams in Freetown, Sierra Leone with the goal of reaching out to economically disadvantaged women. The Project was birth from an evangelical campaign in 1994 with a dedication to bring new life to at-risk women and children. NewLife Project was initially registered as a charitable organization in April 2001 with the Government of Sierra Leone under the Ministry of Social Welfare, Gender, and Children’s Affairs. In 2009, NewLife Project was certified by the Ministry of Education in Sierra Leone. After recognizing the impact and success of the women’s rehabilitation program, NewLife launched its Scholarship Trust in June 2009 in the USA with 501(c) 3 Tax Exempt Status. In August of that same year, NewLife Project Inc. was registered as a Non-Governmental Organization under the Ministry of Territorial Administration in Cote d’Ivoire. Lastly, in August 2014, NewLife Project was registered as a Corporation under the Canada Not-for-profit Corporation Act. NewLife Project has touched the lives of hundreds of women, men, and children in different communities in Cote d’Ivoire, Sierra Leone, and Ghana through our Vocational Training Programs, Rehabilitation Centre, organized Health Clinics and International Relief Programs. In Canada, we have established a Centre reaching out to our immediate communities, Shelters, youths, women  and children through various programs such as:

Afro-Canadian craft classes

Afro- Canadian craft classes which are geared towards developing skills, self-esteem and confidence in kids and teens. The goal is educating the young generation about the Black culture and its values through crafts 

French tutoring classes

French tutoring classes for children and adults in the Ottawa/ Gatineau community in order to enhance their French literacy since Canada has two official languages
