cal-logoThe Change-A-Life project in partnership with the Lagos State Government will celebrate its seventh year of operations by becoming formally institutionalized as Change-A-Life Foundation. The event will be televised live on Nigeria Television Authority (NTA) on February 21, 2009 between 7pm – 9pm.

The project, which is championed by Ms. Funmi Iyanda, began in 2002 with the support of the former governor of Lagos State Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. The first edition of the project, which aired on January 1, 2002, saw sixty-eight people awarded grants of N10, 000 each for micro-businesses and educational projects.

Over the years, Change-A-Life has affected 150 children and over 3000 people with its scholarship and health care support services.

Speaking about her motivation for the project, Ms. Funmi Iyanda remarked “we were just doing what we thought was right at the time—helping hardworking people who just needed a hand—it is really about human dignity.” She further explained that Change-A-Life is being launched as a full-fledged organization in order to accommodate more deserving youth and families with exceptional potential.
