The main criteria for support through the programme are:
A. Recipients of support are children, boys and girls, who qualify for assessment between the ages of 9 and 17;
B. Recipients of support are disadvantaged in society, either by poverty in health or in wealth;
C. Recipients of support are bright and capable, with potential for excellence with adequate aid.
All referrals/candidates will be subjected to a period of assessment, to ascertain their claim to poverty in health or in wealth, and also to determine their skills and potentials. A decision to adopt will be taken on a case by case basis, subject to the capacity of the organisation to provide long-term benevolence to the child. Those who qualify for support from the Disadvantage to Advantage Programme will gain access to the following opportunities:
- Primary and/or Secondary education
- Tertiary education
- Vocational and/or Technical education
- Arts and Sports Training/Development
- Life Skills Training
- Guidance Counselling
- General health care and treatment
- Internships and Apprenticeships
- Small Business grants
- Employment support
Fair Life Africa will be a medium, a facilitator and a benefactor to children within the community, who require assistance to defeat an inherent or structural disadvantage.
