Donate now to support New Libya Foundation initiatives

We are..

Founded Febraury 25th, 2011 in response to the call for democracy in Libya, the New Libya Foundation serves to nurture democratic foundations through the building of Libyan civil society from the ground up. The most vital element of a new Libya is a society that is able to determine the course of its future, and contribute in setting the priorities of its governing body. No call to democratic governance can be realized until people organize to address their concerns and aspirations.

The Libyan people have taken on the cause of building their nation and empowering citizens. The New Libya Foundation is working to provide the resources and means necessary to build the civic institutions of the new Libya and generations to come.

Our Mission
Nurture the successful development of civil society organizations in Libya through training, education, access to resources and financial assistance. Our vision is broad with our immediate focus on: Civic engagement, inclusiveness, and association.


The New Libya Foundation is now accepting interns for the summer of 2015. Internships are a great way to discover Libya and experience the various components of the role of civil society in democratic transitions. We also work to ensure our interns serve our mission while doing what they are good at and what they enjoy so that they may get the full benefit of an international internship.

Please message internship coordinator Manal Mansur at, and cc for more information on intern qualifications, duties and benefits.
