Challenge

Sarah is a 12 year old girl, who lives with her mom and dad in Lagos. She's very gifted and is excelling in Maths and English at school. However, when a fatal accident claims her dad's life, her mom is distraught, and unable to continue to provide for Sarah and her younger brother and sister. Without the money to pay for a second term in school, Sarah has to drop out to work and help her mother. Sarah's story is a common story for many children in Nigeria, who are brilliant but disadvantaged!

Solution

FLA will seek out children with potential for excellence, who are disadvantaged in society, and 'adopt' them, and provide them with long-term succour and opportunities for growth (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, intellectual and academic). We will enrol children in schools/universities or vocational centres/technical colleges to learn and thrive, and finally groom and guide each child to locate their unique gifts and train them to utilise them for the betterment of themselves and society

Long-Term Impact

EMPOWERMENT FOR CHILD: The child will be supported to complete his/her schooling and/or learn a vocation that will provide him/her with opportunities in life; PROTECTING FAMILY LIFE: As support is given to children in need, families are prevented from breakdown, and encouraged to thrive. This ultimately results in more stable communities; ENTREPRENEURS/WORKERS IN SOCIETY: Being well trained and educated, the children become entrepreneurs/workers, rather than beggars, and contribute to society
