PROGRAMMES

OVERVIEW OF PROGRAM DELIVERY

One major unique feature of Change-A-Life’s program delivery; Holistic Educational Scholarship scheme is that it does not separate the young educational scholarship beneficiaries from their families, unless there is a clear case of abuse. We provide a well-rounded and self-sustaining enterprise base to the parents and guardians on which they can rebuild their lives.

Our beneficiaries come from various schools in both remote and urban communities in Lagos State. Sometimes individuals whose stories of loss or tragedy are profiled in the media are brought to our attention and we take these people on to assist them in fulfilling their life goals.

  • OUR CORE AREAS OF FOCUS

    Since 2002, Change-A-Life has served over three thousand five hundred (3,500) beneficiaries through its educational scholarship, business and healthcare support services. Over the years, Change-A-Life has been providing aid to children, youth and parents in Lagos State and its environs. We engage in programs that form the fulcrum of positive development. Specifically, our educational and business intervention work ensures continuity of support for the otherwise vulnerable clients that we serve.

    • EDUCATION

      Primarily, with the continuous encouragement and support from the State Government, private organisations and individuals, Change-A-Life provides scholarships to school-aged children from primary to post-secondary levels of education. Also provide capacity building in life skills and vocational training coupled with internship programmes. We also partner with local and international institutions to obtain scholarships and work opportunities for qualified candidates to advance to graduate studies both in Nigeria and abroad.

    • BUSINESS

      CAL advances business start-up grants to women in our communities, especially the parents of the children who are on our educational scholarship; to opportune them start or maintain small businesses. The grant from Change-A-Life enables the recipients to invest additional capital in their businesses, which would eventually yield more profits for them and position them to better support their families.

    • PARTNERSHIP & ENGAGEMENT

      Through our Capacity Building & Consultancy/Give Back to Society platform, we aim to awaken Nigerian private organisations, businesses , government agencies & corporations consciousness towards their corporate social responsibilities, especially leading up to improving the quality of life of our target audiences.
