Who we are
New Life Trust is an Australian based Charitable Organization that works for the direct relief of poverty and suffering of children.
Our current Myanmar Project currently provides relief for orphans and abandoned children.
The Australian support group formalised the New Life Trust on the 21st March 2006 in Australia as a registered charity, to continue and expand its work in Myanmar and regions beyond.
We currently need to raise a minimum of US$150,000 per year for this work to continue. The money is raised by general donations, support for individual child sponsorship ( Au$400 per year ) and Tax Deductable projects.
Currently we have a program to raise US$160,000 to fund the building of an Education Training Centre for the children of the centre. They will also use this new building to reach out to the local community, and help educate them in areas of life skills.
All those involved with New Life Trust, do so on a voluntary basis.
Because of this.....100% of the funds raised go directly to the cause......
Any administration costs to run the Australian side of the organization, and including travel to and from the projects are born by the volunteers or covered by gifting individuals.
New Life Foundation is almost totally financially supported by Australia through New Life Trust, but plans are underway for the Myanmar centre to have opportunities to become a little more financially self sufficient even within their difficult economic environment by growing their own crops and fish farming. We would also like to set up a hostel and restaraunt.
We are grateful that hundreds of orphans and abandoned children have been given a second chance of life. This is the motivation that drives us to be a voice for the voiceless.
