Sponsor A Child

Through our Disadvantage to Advantage (D2A!) Initiative, we are supporting children who are disadvantaged but also bright, gifted or talented to achieve their potentials.   These are the children who have been assessed by our social workers and have been adopted into the programme.

Click on the picture of the child you want to sponsor, to make a safe and regular donation via our GlobalGiving Project Page.

Alternatively, you can make a local donation at Guaranty Trust Bank to Fair Life Africa Foundation, account no 0106643687.  Please specify the child’s name and if you are a one-off or monthly donor.
