New Community Project
...Turning the world upside down...
NCP Special Projects
Healing and hope for earth and its people
"I've seen these projects, and I can confidently say that any money you give will do good things for the people of Nimule, South Sudan...people I've met and come to love. There's no middle man and no overhead...one of the things that makes New Community Project great." - NCP Solidarity Worker Sarah Durnbaugh (read more of Sarah’s report)
Ever wonder if the things we do in the world make a difference? We’d like to think that in struggling communities and ecosystems around the world, NCP is having a positive impact.
Give a Girl a Chance
“Before these projects, the only thing women in this village produced was babies.” – Burmese women’s group
From Myanmar to Nepal to South Sudan and the Dominican Republic, we’re helping girls and women get the education and skills training they need to live happy, healthy and productive lives. For girls, education is the key to later marriage, fewer children, and a life of opportunity—yet millions either never attend school or withdraw at an early age due to gender or poverty—or lack of sanitary materials. Women often are reduced to near-slave labor, the sex trade or work that is at best demeaning and unrewarding. Give a Girl a Chance works with grassroots groups to address the challenges facing girls and women respectfully, effectively and efficiently. Find out more here.
If a Tree Falls...
“Plant a new Truffula. Treat it with care.
We couldn’t agree more with Dr. Seuss! That’s why we’re replanting trees in South Sudan and Myanmar and protecting rainforest in the Amazon. Forests provide habitat, regulate rainfall, clean the air, store carbon, provide natural medicines and homes for native communities, and give us places of wildness and wonder. NCP also works to create efficient, culturally appropriate and life-saving wood-conserving stoves in partner communities. Find out more here.
