FLEXISAF FOUNDATION COLLABORATES WITH AFLON DIGITAL ACADEMY TO PROVIDE SCHOLARSHIPS TO TWELVE (12) OUT OF SCHOOL CHILDREN
Providing a safe learning environment for vulnerable children
(February 21, 2019) – In December 2018, Aflon Digital Academy made an agreement with Flexisaf Foundation to support 12 Out of School Children back to school by providing basic quality education in an integrated and conducive environment for learning.
The scholarships awarded are for children aged 4-10 who will be enrolled in primary school at Aflon, in the current school term.
To ensure that the best and brightest children with the potential to excel in school are selected, The Flexisaf Foundation carried out the process of identifying and verifying the children in their communities. The young beneficiaries of the scholarships are all residents of Gudaba, a small community just across the road from Aflon. The children come from families that are unable to pay for their school fees and also orphans that are being taken care of at the Gudaba orphange.
The enrollment meeting was well attended, including The Director of Aflon, representatives of Flexisaf Foundation, and the beneficiaries and their guardians, who made a commitment to ensure that their children do well in school and attend regularly.
“I cannot adequately express my joy. I never went to school, but I want my children to have a good life” Mrs. Chinasa, Widowed mother of one of the beneficiaries shared. “This is beyond all my imaginations.”
