About Us

About Us

We are a group of impassioned volunteers, who have seen the plight of women and children in America first hand and have dedicated our lives to helping has many people as possible. With such an overwhelming task ahead of us we are united in our common vision where every women and child across the continental united states is safe, supported to attain a high level of education and is living in a loving home with an engaging and supportive community.

Poverty in America is not a simple matter. We wish it were, but in fact, it is a complex socio-economic problem often resulting for a failing of the systems, which are designed to protect vulnerable people in the first place. We utilised international experts from the development community to ensure our programs are robust and impactful, ensuring we address the long term systemic and endemic causes of poverty, homelessness, gender violence and inequality in the U.S.

Who We Are

We believes every women and child deserves the opportunity to live lives of dignity, health, safety and happiness. Our philosophy is that we are all equal and given the same support and opportunities as those more fortunate, our beneficiary group can transform their own lives. Education, Support and Unite.

Before COVID-19, 7.3 million children were already out of school. In 2020, the colossal scale of school closures due to the pandemic left millions more children missing fundamental years of education. Newsum Foundation believes that achieving universal basic education across the U.S is the single greatest step that can be taken towards the elimination of poverty.

We recognise that the barriers to fundamental services such as education, healthcare and welfare are complex and interlinked. Our projects focus on a combination of education, child and female protection and livelihood support to address the social, economic and structural issues that underpin today’s poverty and homelessness crisis.

Wherever we works, Newsum Foundation collaborate with local community leaders and mentors to take an outcome-led approach to problems locally identified. This flexible programming approach combined with evidence driven learning and the constant refinement and scale-up of programmes, create maximum impact for those most marginalised and vulnerable in our society.
