Die Stiftunglife ist eine 1989 gegründete deutsche gemeinnützige Stiftung, die am besten für ihre Unterstützung der Tafeln zur Ausgabe von Lebensmitteln an Bedürftige bekannt ist. Sie verfolgt jedoch den Grundsatz, dass ihre Mittel je zur Hälfte in Deutschland für die Tafeln und benachbarte Tätigkeiten und zur anderen Hälfte im Ausland eingesetzt werden. Der Schwerpunkt in Myanmar liegt in der Förderung Studenten, denen ein Studium ermöglicht wird, im Bau von Schulen und im Betrieb der Swimming Doctors, die die medizinische Versorgung im Delta verbessern. Die Wasserqualität an den inzwischen über 50 Schulen wird durch PAUL, einem Wasserfilter, verbessert. In Dörfern ohne Elektrizität werden die Kerosinlampen durch sauberes Solarlicht ersetzt und in Bagan wird gerade eine Plastikrecyclingfabrik gebaut.
