WHAT CHANGED

New Life Foundation was established in 1988. Since then it has been confined only to working at the grassroots level in 6 villages in the Churchandpur District. From 2008 it also started addressing the issues which are prevailing in the society like gender based violence, child trafficking, HIV /AIDS, child rights etc. in collaboration with the concerned department and also with NGOs, CBOs, and POs. Then the organization has applied for a Children’s Home at the Social Welfare Department, to the Government of Manipur in 2010 and hence it was granted for 25 Boys as inmates. Hence for the organizationm, it is running a children’s home since 2010. With the current strategy, the overall focus in Manipur is on the overall goal of Protection and to build a protective environment for children that is free from violence, abuse and sexual exploitation.
