About New Myanmar Foundation
“Build A Strong Foundation For Our Society”.
New Myanmar Foundation (NMF) was established by a group of concerned citizens in January 2008 to “contribute to the development of Myanmar by strengthening the capacity of citizens and promoting democratic governance”. For the first two years, NMF primarily focused on humanitarian aid (especially in Cyclone Nargis) and education programs in orphanage schools.
In the 2010 transitional period of Myanmar, NMF explicitly focused on strengthening democracy and governance by participating with MYNFREL in the election observation mission, getting technical support from ANFREL.
In 2011, NMF supported to found the BAYDA Institute by providing financial support as well as human resource for nearly one year. During that time, NMF was continuing its capacity-building activities in Yangon. At the end of 2011, NMF reduced its ties to BAYDA Institute (while maintaining cordial relations) and positioned itself as a neutral and non-partisan organization supporting the democratic process rather than a particular party, and willing to provide trainings to any political party and CSOs.
When the 2012 bi-election was announced, NMF developed election training programs for domestic observers, journalists, political party agents, and ethnic groups. In January 2012, NMF tried to organize and develop an observation network for the bi-election observation mission. NMF facilitated the provision of international technical assistance to the observer network, which was provided by the Asia Foundation and the Asian Network for Free Elections (ANFREL). NMF also coordinated and facilitated visits to Myanmar and meetings in-country for numerous delegations from the Asia Foundation, ANFREL, and EU.
From early 2013, NMF started to participate in national-level discussions with the Union Election Commission (UEC) and also contributed its volunteer services as the focal point for all the stakeholder meetings organized by European Electoral Support Team (EU-EST). Then, NMF initiated to development Domestic Election Observation Network (DEON) through Election Education and Observation Partners (EEOPs) which was intended for the 2015 general election. In 2013, NMF upgraded its capacity and also participated in Training And Parliamentary Education (TAPE) program organized by ANFREL
