How It Works

How It Works

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
  • Mentorship
  • General health care and treatment
  • Internships and Apprenticeships
  • Small Business grants
  • Employment support
