About NMF

New Myanmar Foundation (NMF) was established by a group of concerned citizens in January 2008 to “contribute into the development of Myanmar by strengthening the capacity of citizens and promoting democratic governance”. For the first two years, NMF primarily focused humanitarian aids (especially in Cyclone Nargis) and education programs in orphanage schools.

In 2010 transitional period of Myanmar, NMF explicitly focused on strengthening democracy and governance by participating with MYNFREL in the election observation mission, getting technical supports 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.
