We have had an amazing experience these past FIVE wonderful years of impacting lives through practical social initiatives. Fair Life Africa Foundation counts her many blessings even as we keep growing stronger!
In February 2011, we started out with the Fun Feed which was a great day for 220 poor children in Gbara before we began Breakfast and Talk at Kuramo Beach, as we reached out to street children there.
The Care Continuity Challenge Initiative got underway as our respite Home was opened in the first quarter of 2012, as a shelter for street children. We are glad about our timely intervention in 2012 and 2013 as we continue to reap rewards of boys whose lives have been changed forever! Many are settled back at home and off the streets for good.
Charles, Mark, Peter, Adam and Andrew are boys from our CCC Initiative who we continue to work closely with and keep track of their progress at home. Charles is currently in SS1 at a private school close to his residence, Adam is learning a vocation as a Fashion Designer, while Mark, Peter, Andrew are doing sitting for JAMB and seeking to further their education in a tertiary institution.
We commenced the Disadvantage to Advantage Initiative in October 2014 as we sought to support children who are bright and gifted from poor backgrounds with educational scholarship. 16 brilliant children from different communities in Lagos currently enjoy academic sponsorship with the huge debts of school fees taken off the shoulders of their poor parents.
In December 2015, we partnered Ultima Studios for the first ever Children’s Talent Search Competition from which six winners emerged with talents in dance, drama, music, fine art, football and bead-making! They joined the FLA Kids in our care, to bring our the number of children to 31, who are empowered by us for a better life. Learn more about this amazing venture and consider sponsoring the winners!
Hope, transformation and empowerment remain a common thread of what we do at Fair Life Africa Foundation. Despite the many challenges along the way, though we could have thrown in the towel and called it quits, our resolve of inspiring hope and bringing positive change to our community has kept us going.
We remain grateful to our trustees, friends, sponsors and corporate partners, who have supported us through their generous donations in cash, provisions and services. We love what we do and believe one random act of kindness a day is all it takes to change the world. We appreciate even the smallest contribution made, because it encouraged us, motivated us, inspired us and challenged us, to not only stand but, to take another step forward.
WE DID IT! Together! We are Fair Life Africa! Happy Birthday to us!
