Empowering women and youth to achieve divine accomplishment and fulfil their purpose, we are dedicated to rebuilding broken lives and facilitating total restoration. Our vision is to build a community of virtuous women and young individuals through robust support systems, fostering personal and professional growth.

Our Story

NewLife Project is a Non-Profit Organization which was founded by Brenda Williams in Freetown, Sierra Leone to reach out to underprivileged women. The project was born from an evangelical campaign in 1994 with a dedication to bringing new life to at-risk women and children. NewLife Project has touched the lives of over a thousand lives including women, men, and children in different communities in Cote d’Ivoire, Sierra Leone, and Ghana through our Vocational Training Programs, Women’s Forum, Rehabilitation Centre, organized Health Clinics, and Relief Programs. In 2014, we established a centre in Canada to help women and youth in our community. We offer a unique and dynamic set of programs that aim to develop our members so they can succeed in their personal and professional ventures. Members not only build their knowledge and skills, but they also make meaningful connections with the community.

Our Purpose

Our purpose is to empower women and youth globally by:

 Providing a platform where members can participate in seminars and events to develop entrepreneurial tools and access the resources and motivation to take the next step towards economic independence through our Women’s World Forum.

Helping members achieve proficiency in English and French through our language tutoring program. Proficiency in English and French is especially vital for employment and entrepreneurial success.

 Training women and youth, especially immigrants, in designing and producing artefacts using African print fabrics through our intergenerational Sewing Classes. Participants can lean on these skills for their businesses and generate income. It is also a way for them to showcase pride in their culture.

 Through the provision of opportunities and programs that offer skill and knowledge development, entrepreneurship, language education, and community connections, we help marginalized women and youth overcome their challenges and build a life of success.
